International music competitions are a key moment in musicians learning path. They represent an outstanding opportunity for the participants to meet other young musicians coming from different places and with different backgrounds. Competitions also allow the competitors to considerably develop their musical as well as personal skills. They are a positive moment after which the participants are rewarded for their efforts. Whether they win or not, the important thing is to accept the challenge and to live this motivating experience. It will give them more confidence for the continuation of their musical education and career.
Narva’s International Competition of Young Pianists dedicated to the work of 'Fryderyk Chopin' is a competition of great level and embodies these principles since its creation in 1997 by the ambassador of Poland in Estonia, Mr. Jakub Wolasiewicz. This 11th edition of the International Competition will surely feature many outstanding and raising talents.
In the tradition of European co-operation, the European Union of Music Competitions for Youth (EMCY) will award the EMCY Prize to one musician for an inspiring and remarkable performance at this competition. We will also promote several prize winners on our website (www.emcy.org), offering them a springboard for further training and performance opportunities throughout Europe. EMCY believes that it is of utmost importance that these outstanding young musicians receive the support they highly deserve.
We wish success to competitors, jurors, teachers and organisers of the 11th International Competition of Young Pianists dedicated to the Work of 'Fryderyk Chopin'!

Dear Competition participants, dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
Fryderyk Chopin’s music creations are special in many respects. First of all, as the German poet Heinrich Heine noted, Chopin is an unsurpassed “piano poet”, who created an incredible number of breathtaking music compositions during his short life; compositions which entail both inspiration and challenge for myriad of followers and virtuosos, particularly for those who belong to the young and youthful generation. Secondly, Chopin’s admirers in every corner of the world love his music heritage and organize wonderful events akin to the International Chopin Competition of Young Pianists in Narva.
From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank the young and talented pianists for participation in the Competition and for the interest you have shown to the creativity of the outstanding Polish composer. Youth, sensitivity, excellence, expressiveness – these are the values, which inextricably accompany the creations of Fryderyk Chopin. I am sure the same words can be applied to characterize you, the Competition participants. That is why I want to express my highest appreciation and wish every one of you endurance, inspiration, and every success in serving the art.
This year’s Competition is very special. You all participate in the 10th, jubilee, competition, which takes place in this wonderful corner of Europe, renowned for its long-standing traditions, and exceptional national heritage. The contest organizers have taken very good care of the development of the event, its promotion among the public, thus increasing the number of friends, partners and admirers supporting the competition. These efforts have been noticed not only in Estonia and Poland, but all throughout the world.
I want to thank: Estonian Minister of Culture Urve Tiidus and her predecessors at the post for the support in organizing the Competition, Ambassador of the Polish Republic to Estonia Grzegoz Marek Poznanski and the Embassy’s staff for the development of cultural ties between Estonia and Poland, general sponsors of the Competition Halina and Miroslaw Pienkowski for their personal presence and exceptional care of the great composer’s followers.
I wish all of you spirituality and high aesthetic pleasure, and every success to all the contestants!

Kind regards,

Bogdan Zdrojewski
Minister of Culture and National Heritage of Poland

Dear music lovers!

Narva has developed into a very considerable international cultural and music center in Estonia. A significant role in this transition has played the International Music Competition devoted to the creations of F. Chopin. This year we celebrate already the tenth, jubilee contest - a tradition, which started 15 years ago. During this time, the competition has developed into a major international event attended by dozens of young musicians, together with parents and teachers from many countries.

I recall with gratitude the former Polish ambassador Jakub Wolasiewicz, who urged the people of Narva to organize a grand event back in 1998. Narva loves music. The city has several music schools, where there are so many good piano students and excellent teachers that it was possible and necessary to organize such a gathering of pianists here.

The Chopin Competition is an important cultural bridge between Estonia and Poland, which is not limited to just the competition. The best pianists will be rewarded with the opportunity to perform in both Estonia and Poland. I am grateful to the organizers the Contest in Narva for the professional work! I hope you will continue your endeavors to be a leader in the flock of major music events in years to come.
I wish good luck to all participants, teachers, members of the jury and spectators!
Let the love to music live on! Have beautiful music experiences at the 2014 Chopin Competition in Narva!

Best regards,

Urve Tiidus
Minister of Culture
