Just in: Leeds Piano Competition gets record dealmain
Warner Classics has won the right to record this year’s winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition.
Leeds calls the recording deal ‘a corner-stone of its new prize package, designed to redefine what a music competition can offer young performers. The prize also includes management with Askonas Holt.
Adam Gatehouse, co-Artistic Director of Leeds International Piano Competition says: The Competition will bring some of the world’s most talented young pianists to prominence in Leeds this September, and as part of our re-envisaging of what the Competition can bring to both audiences and competitors, we have set out to ensure that those young artists have the best possible support as they go on to develop significant international careers into the future. Warner Classics, who have such a strong history in truly nurturing young artists, are the ideal partner in this and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with them.
