The Sydney International Piano Competition (The Sydney) will present a special 60+ hour digital event, The Sydney Piano Marathon, from July 23 to 26, broadcasting footage from its 2016 event and offering viewers the opportunity to see some of the world's most talented young musicians from the comfort of their own homes.
The Sydney 2016 saw 32 pianists selected from around the world compete in three stages. The preliminary stage consisted of two solo recitals, with 12 competitors selected to move into the semi final stage where they performed a 65 minute solo recital and a chamber music recital.
The six chosen to compete in the final stage performed two full length concertos with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
The Sydney is a significant international event which takes place every four years and was to be held next this July, but has now been rescheduled to take place from 23 June to 10 July 2021.
The webstream will commence on Thursday 23 July at 7:30pm and continue to Sunday 26 July until approximately 2:00pm AEST, and can be accessed on The Sydney's website.
