Kissin fronts new piano contestmain
The Italian heirs of the late concert organiser Antonio Mormone have launched a piano competition with Evgeny Kissin as chairman.
Kissin says: ‘Antonio Mormone was an extraordinary man whom I had a privilege to know and be friends with for almost 30 years. He loved music, he loved talented people, his memory should be cherished, and I believe that this Prize will be the best way to honour Antonio Mormone’s memory for many years to come.’
Top prize is 30,000 Euros.
