The 2023 VIVACE International Piano Competition (Paris, France) involving nearly 40 regions globally and will be officially launched on April 2023 for registration. This top-level international competition is organised by the Sino-French Art Practice Association (A.P.A), with the aim to enhance the relations between China and France and promote the exchange and cooperation of international musical and artistic talents. The panel of jury is made up of authoritative pianists and educators. 

Through this competition and the guidance of world-famous piano masters and mutual learning between the various counterparts, we aim to improve the contestants’ professional skills, deepen inter-school exchange and cooperation, and discover brilliant pianists in the international music arena. 

This international competition brings excellent players of various nations together, realizes “zero distance” with international masters, embraces well-known French music conservatoires and provides a high-level platform for players. It aims to provide excellent pianists with the opportunity to broaden their international horizons and to set up a stage for their artistic communication and self-challenge.
