The ChopinPIanoFEST Prishtina is a festival of classical music dedicated to the mastery of piano performance. It is held in springtime every year.

The Festival was established for the first time on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Chopin in 2010 by the Kosovo Chopin Association. Because of its great success and appreciation by the audience in Kosovo, it has become a traditional piano festival which is held in springtime in April every year.

The festival is highly appreciated by critics, fans and the growing audience as an excellent presentation of the mastery of piano, offering interpretations by both world renowned pianists and local talents.ChopinPiano FEST Prishtina offers opportunity to see and enjoy live piano performances by local and international distinguished pianists performing piano works not only of Chopin, but also of other well known composers, classical and contemporary ones. The attractive program is selected and prepared (in cooperation with participating artists) by Festival Artistic Director Prof. Lejla Haxhiu-Pula, the first pianist in Kosovo. With her experience and knowledge as the main piano professor at the University of Prishtina since the 70′s she makes sure that our festival programme offer new insights into piano music repertoire by different musicians worldwide.

Chopin Piano FEST Prishtina does usually take place in springtime with two to three concerts being held within each week. The closing concert is always organized in cooperation with the Kosovo Philharmonics performing a piano concerto.

The festival offers concerts, master classes with students and symposium/round tables dedicated to the life and work of composers whose anniversaries are marked on the actual year worldwide.With the adequate support from institutions and businesses that value cultivated arts and see a good opportunity of self-promotion, the ChopinPianoFEST Prishtina is outshining its success every year.

In addition, the Festival offers a competition for a Special Prize for a young pianist, offered by a private sponsor from Germany, Mr. Heribert Groeger.

The Compositional Competition "In Honor of Chopin" is re-launched as part of the festival, encouraging the young composers to create new piano pieces and enrich the artistic repertoire for this instrument in Kosovo.
