competitors at the 2013 Beethoven
Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition

 

The winner of the 2013 Beethoven Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition, held at the Austrian Cultural Forum (28 Rutland Gate, London SW7 1PQ, UK) on Sunday 17 March 2013 was the young Hayley Parkes of Chethams School of Music with a beautifully performed Sonata in A flat major Op 26. Second prize was awarded to Martin Bartlett of the Royal College of Music (Junior Dept) who gave an impressively polished account of Op 10 No 3. Altogether five pianists drawn from music schools and Junior departments in the UK performed a programme comprising the compulsory Bagatelle Op 119 No 11 in B flat and a sonata of their own choice before a distinguished Jury comprising Anda Anastacescu, Angela Brownridge and Melvyn Cooper, as well as a select audience.

Martin Bartlett launched the competition with a confident and interesting account of Op 10 No 3 and an especially impressive final movement...
