‘The Leeds’ is a truly international competition with previous prize winners from twenty-eight countries worldwide to date. Our Competition has introduced some of the greatest pianists of our time including Radu Lupu, Murray Perahia, András Schiff, Mitsuko Uchida, Sunwook Kim, Louis Lortie, Piotr Anderszewski and Peter Donohoe. These carry the banner of our competition throughout the world, wherever they perform.

Many prizewinners, not just the first, have had fine international careers from entering ‘The Leeds.’ The calibre and number of engagements offered to the Competition have made the rest of the musical world aware of the extraordinary talents of Leeds competitors, which for many, has resulted in international recognition.

Leeds selects its prize winners based on a combination of factors; musical refinement, versatility, sensitivity and passion, as well as commitment and the strength to take on an international concert career.
