Welcome to the site of the International Piano Competition 2013 “From Bach to Jazz”

Created by the Cultural Association “Nathalie” (www.association-nathalie.com) this international piano competition, under the auspices of the Schola Cantorum of Paris, welcomes candidates of all levels and horizons and aims at promoting all musical styles from J. S. Bach to our day, including Jazz. 

The Competition takes place in the month of May, in the superb venue of the Schola Cantorum, 265 Saint Jacques Street, Paris Vth. 

The Cultural Association “Nathalie”, active both in France and abroad, was setup by the internationally renowned pianist Lilia Boyadjieva in memory of her daughter Nathalie, killed at the age of 20 by an irresponsible car driver. We will always remember her tender and cheeky smile, her “joie de vivre” and her love of all music.

A special prize “Nathalie Voyatzis” is awarded to the best interpretation of a Jazz piece.
