The International Cochran Piano Competition was created in 2014 as the first entirely online piano competition in the world and was inspired by the music of Julian Cochran – Australian composer.
So far, five editions have taken place, in which 600 pianists from all over the world participated. Its unique formula allows participants to submit recordings of their performances digitally, with no traveling required.
The repertoire has to consist of Julian Cochran’s music. The performances are evaluated by the Jury consisting of prominent, award-winning musicians who do not communicate between one another – so far, these have included Dina Yoffe, Tobias Koch, Yejin Gil, Stuart Isacoff, Roberto Prosseda, Jacob Shaw, Gil Sullivan, Krzysztof Jabłoński, and Kevin Kenner. Moreover, not only do they assign scores, but they also provide written feedback for every participant, as one of the core assumptions of the Competition is to provide the contestants with an opportunity to develop. Each participant is also offered a Zoom conversation with the Jury member of their choice. As the Competition is supposed to be accessible for everyone, there is no upper age limit.
