The Chopin Foundation of the United States has set the top prize of its Tenth National Chopin Piano Competition to $100,000 for the 2020 event, making it the highest award offered by any piano competition in the country.

This change showcases the need to provide appropriate compensation to artists at the top of their field, just as professionals in other industries are compensated for devoting large amounts of time, years of intense training, and a true passion to their craft.

There were over international 120 entries, and the winning design was the creation of American Jong Chan Kim.

In 2019 Roland decided to turn Kim’s ideas into an actual working instrument. The company assembled a small design team at their headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan. Using Roland’s latest PureAcoustic modelling software and their Acoustic Projection System a fully functioning GPX-F1 Facet Grand Piano was constructed. And it was unveiled to the world at this week’s CES (2020) exhibition in Las Vegas.

A performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, as played by a young American in Moscow in 1958, has never been forgotten in the former Soviet Union.

The pianist, Van Cliburn, who died at the age of 78 on February 27 in Texas, was competing at the time in the first-ever International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Just 23 years old, he was a long-shot entry. But right from the start it became clear that despite the great divide between Soviet citizens and Americans, something special was happening.

By the time the competition was drawing to a close, Cliburn was the audience favorite, not just in Moscow but across the Soviet Union, as the event was broadcast on state radio. When the judges announced Cliburn had won, music lovers celebrated openly, despite the official chill in Soviet-U.S. relations.
