The International Chopin Piano competition is known for its incredible power to turn unknown prodigies into global stars. Among past winners are Maurizio Pollini, Martha Argerich, Garrick Ohlsson, Krystian Zimerman, Rafal Blechacz, and Seong-Jin Cho. Every five years (due to the limitations imposed in the wake of the pandemic, the competition was postponed from 2020 to 2021), the jury faces an almost impossible task, they have to select the best pianist out of over 500 outstandingly gifted and perfectly trained contestants from all over the world. The preliminaries were held in July, and the jury qualified 87 pianists. The competition is divided into four stages. The results will traditionally be announced from the stairs in the main lobby of the Warsaw Philharmonic Hall on the night of 20/21 October.
