President's Greetings

Paloma o'Shea

It is with great pleasure that I am calling the XIX International Piano Competition of Santander, which will be held in the summer of 2018.

All young talented pianists the world over are invited to participate. They will find a very carefully organized preselection, based only in their merits; a prestigious and independent jury, very attractive prizes, and first level artists. The twelve participants that are able to pass to the semifinal will be playing with the Quiroga Quartet, and the six finalists will do so with the RTVE Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its head conductor, Maestro Miguel Ángel Gómez Martínez within the programme of the Santander International Festival. The awardees will be touring though Spain and abroad, and the winner shall be presented in prestigious music halls, as well as record a CD under the Naxos label.

The piano, a universal language

Additionally, the Competition in itself is a great piano festival with 50 concerts that will be organized with maximum care and following the demands of concerts open to the public. I encourage you all to follow the competition, through the radio, television, and the Internet, or better still, being with us personally, because spending the summer in Santander is an unforgettable experience.

See you there!

Paloma O’Shea
