From October 25th through December 14th, 2002, The Rock Hotel Pianofest will revitalize the piano recital with a barrage of performances by legends of today and up and coming greats of tomorrow. Major debuts, appearances by major artists long absent from the New York stages, and performances by many extra-ordinary pianists currently performing internationally will be presented in venues both traditional and unfamiliar.

The Pianofest is produced by the Rock Hotel Impresario Chris Williamson in association with Jon Aaron acting as VP of management, and VisionIntoArt. Williamson, known for his blitzkrieg style of promotion in the rock and pop world, will employ similar methods in promoting the Pianofest. He has successfully promoted such "classical" artists as Philip Glass, John Tavener, Helene Grimaud and the Eroica Trio, leading to sold out concert halls and significant career enhancement for these artists.

Pianists will include: Earl Wild, Natasha Paremski, Boris Berezovsky, Toradze Studio,Lukas Vondracek, Jerome Lowenthal, Jean Yves Thibaudet, Diane Walsh, Andrew Rangell, Cristina Ortiz, Russell Sherman, Sergei Schepkin, Konstantin Lifshitz, Berenika Zakrzewska, Naida Cole, Frederic Chiu, Amy Dissanayake, Philip Glass, Dennis Russell Davies, Christopher Taylor, Roger Woodward, Oxana Yablonskaya, Ursula Oppens & Frederic Rzewski, Sergei Babayan, Dubravka Tomsic, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Speranza Scappucci, & Stephen Gosling, with many more emerging pianists.

Dear Outstanding Amateur Pianist:

I'm very happy to report that the 4th Annual New York City International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs (formerly Northeastern Classical Piano Competition) will be moving to the Goethe Institut, 1014 Fifth Avenue, NYC (a beautiful facility directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art) for all three days of the competition, May 2, 3 and 4, 2003 with many important changes.

Again we're offering a $1,000 cash prize plus a NYC Recital to the winner with additional awards for Best Performance of a "Baroque", Classical," Romantic'" and "Modern," work as well as the "Audience Award," and new this year, "Most Imaginative Program Award" and "Press Jury Award."

We will be calling ourselves the New York City International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs and we will be limiting the entrants to the FIRST 45 APPLICANTS. There will now be 10 semifinalists chosen who will play 15 minutes each and 5 finalists who will play 30 minutes each. Also new this year, every entrant will have a choice to play on a Steinway Model O or the Mason & Hamlin semi-concert grand. And of course, Master Classes will be given by two esteemed members of our Jury: Eva Kovalik and Joseph Smith.

We hope you can spend the first weekend of May 2003 in the Big Apple with us. It has proven to be a wonderful weekend of beautiful piano music, camaraderie and joy of sharing your talent with many kindred spirits from all over the World.

If you're interested in joining us, I urge you to send in your application immediately to reserve your time slot. Your final program may follow at a later date. For more background information, please go to

Best Regards,

Phred Meller

He also has toured extensively through Europe, winning many piano competitions including the Gold Medal at the Concurso Internacional de Piano María Canals in Barcelona and the Silver Medal at the Incontro Internazionale Pianisti Cittá di Senigallia in Italy.
