Naarden International Piano Festival was founded at the end of 2018 to serve and nourish young pianists, that are about to graduate from the Conservatory and are ready to dive into the independent music world.

Young talents, hand picked for the “Discovery” Concert Series, will have an opportunity to personally meet well experienced Master Pianists, will receive their advice and guidance. They will also receive the opportunity to perform concerts, attended by Honorary Guests consisting from representatives of major concert halls, music agencies and record labels.

The next festival will take place from April 29 – May 2, 2021, in the intimate concert hall BIJ ANDREAS. For the first time the opening concert will take place at the Grote Kerk, both located in Naarden-Vesting. The festival hosts two concert series: Master Pianist Concert Series and Discovery Concert Series. The audience will also get the chance to attend interviews with pianists and members of the Honorary Guests.
