Founded in 1961 by Marion Thorpe and Dame Fanny Waterman, the competition takes place every three years in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. As one of the most renowned piano competitions in the world, The Leeds invites six selected finalists to perform a chosen concerto before a winner is pronounced. The event’s top prize, including cash price and a string of bookings with UK and international orchestras, has grown in prestige as previous winners have progressed to great careers. They include Murray Perahia, Radu Lupu, András Schiff, Mitsuko Uchida, Lars Vogt, Louis Lortie and Artur Pizarro.
