The Kelvin Grout International Piano Accompanists' Competition

I just received an email message from Kelvin Grout, a pianist based in the Netherlands, announcing the Kelvin Grout International Piano Accompanists' Competition in Amsterdam September 8th to the 13th, 2008. Entry forms will be available from October 15th of this year, and the top prize is a whopping 10,000 Euros! From what i can tell from the announcement page, this competition seems to be aimed primarily for accompanists who work with vocal literature - no mention of any collaborative instrumental categories. Mr. Grout, who is celebrating his 50th year as a professional pianist in 2007, is also working on a book and DVD film, both titled "Behind the Notes", and both scheduled to be released simultaneously with the start of the competition.

Competitions for soloists abound - those for accompanists are almost unheard of, so this is a rare and wondrous treat for those who "work in the shadows"! Best wishes to Mr. Grout and the patrons of this new competition!
