Ever since the BPSE was established in 1993, two piano competitions and one chamber music masterclass & competition are organised every year.
These masterclasses and competitions bring together aspiring and promising student-pianists/chamber musicians to compete for cash prizes and opportunities to play in competition-winners’ recitals organised by the BPSE.
Starting from 2016, the BPSE (in association with Opus Musica and EPTA West London) present a new series of Masterclasses and Competition of Beethoven Piano Concertos.
2015 marked the twenty-third anniversary of these competitions:
- Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition (Spring)
- Senior Intercollegiate Piano Competition (November/December)
- Chamber Music Masterclass and Competition: The ‘Gwyneth George’ Award (Spring)
- Concerto Masterclasses and Competition (November)
