Sunday evening at New York Café of the Hotel Boscolo Prague was dedicated to music, quality entertainment and competition. All this comes with already the fifth year of the contest The Pianist of the Year that still carries the same goal – to bring live music back to people. Both the audience and the participants enjoyed the first round of the popular piano competition. Pianists from all around the world were creating a perfect atmosphere during the whole evening. Each participant performed two pieces, from classical and popular music. Famous melodies by the best pianists of the world, such as Sergei Rachmaninoff, Frédéric Chopin, Johann Sebastian Bach or Franz Liszt, as well as pop songs by Queen or Sash! were played. Pavel Kuznetsov earned an exceptional applause by his performance of Billy Jean by Michael Jackson. The audience asked for more with a big ovation. It proves that the competition is really worth watching.
We look forward to the next round taking place on Sunday, 5 Feb 2017. Come to enjoy an evening full of fun and piano music.
