On behalf of everyone at CMDI Group, I would like to warmly welcome you to the fifth edition of the "Berliner Festwoche" International Piano Competition, taking place in the iconic German capital of Berlin.
In addition to its significance and prestige in its own right, "Berliner Festwoche" 2022 also forms part of a larger series of 14 international piano competitions, from which the top five selected participants of each will be invited to compete in the “Classic Piano” Dubai International Competition 2024.
A central mission of CMDI Group is to discover, promote and support the next generation of musical masters, rediscover unusual repertoire and provide audiences with a unique musical experience. Through projects like this one, it is our aim not only to help guide the careers of talented emerging artists from around the world, but to also build the audiences of the future to help ensure the very existence of classical music. Our focus is to provide a valuable platform for visionary young performers and to exchange knowledge and experience on an international level, and we are proud to welcome pianists from across the globe in this endeavour.
With so many artistic achievements to its credit, both in the past and looking ahead, CMDI Group looks forward to the continued success of its classical music projects in the future and the further sharing and development of this cherished art form across the world.
I welcome you all to the “Berliner Festwoche” International Piano Competition 2022, and I wish everyone an enjoyable stay in Berlin! Good luck and success to all participants.
