Artistic Patron

The Sydney welcomes back Maestro Valery Gergiev as Artistic Patron of the 2020 Sydney International Piano Competition. As one of the most prominent musical figures of our time, one of the world’s most renowned and indefatigable conductors, Artistic and General Director of the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg for over twenty years, Principal Conductor of the Munich Philharmonic, and Chair of the Organising Committee of the International Tchaikovsky Competition, he is in an extraordinary position to help our prize-winners on their own paths to musical glory.
