The Muzio Clementi Junior Award at Tunbridge Wells, March 2019

We are delighted to announce the information for the Muzio Clementi Junior Award Piano Competition that will be held in Tunbridge Wells. Priority entry is given to competitors from the 2018 Competition. Open to age 18 and Under.

Sunday 24th March 2019 – 11am to 5pm
Intermediate to Advanced level classes will be held at Finchcocks Charity’s newly-built performance space in Tunbridge Wells. Performers will play two Clementi 19th-century instruments from the Finchcocks Collection. There will be a short introductory workshop with Steven Devine and Gary Branch and time to try out the instruments before the competitions.
There will be a Set Repertoire List of music by Clementi from which to choose one piece for performance. This list will be published in September 2018 on this page. Please ensure you have signed up to our newsletter to receive the latest festival updates. We will no longer use the MadMimi newsletter software after 25th of May and we move to this Mailchimp mailing list instead.
Beginner classes will remain in Kensington at Clementi’s former family home on 23 March – click here for info. Entries are now open for this class. Performer spaces are strictly limited due to the small size of the venue.
