  • Top Of The World » Looking back at how it all started
    of them thought that they had to go to the top of the world because they had not been there before During this conference the idea of an international piano competition in Tromsø was first proposed It was Paul Pollei founder of one of the most prestigious competitions in the world The Gina Bachauer in Salt Lake City Utah who thought that a competition in Tromsø would attract pianists from all over the world His good friend Svein Ludvigsen was also there for a whole day during the conference and approved of the idea It was also supported by the Member of Parliament Tove Karoline Knutsen who thought that a competition would boost the town s international culture profile and further highlight the city s application for the Winter Olympics in 2018 In addition Paul Pollei promised to assist in any way if the idea became a reality After the conference Nordlys wrote an article Tromsø on the world s culture map and concluded Keep going to get the idea realised Let Harstad have Festspillene let Bodø have the Musikkfestuke An international piano competition in Tromsø will be the top of the culture list in this part of the country Establishing the competition We continued with good spirit An interim committee was established led by Else Sundquist Applications were written and meetings held with all conceivable partners Municipality of Tromsø Tromsø Kommune Troms County Council Troms Fylkeskommune The Northern Lights Festival Nordlysfestivalen Tromsø Symphony Orchestra NRK and Kulturhuset They all wanted to participate but none of them could make a financial contribution For the undersigned there was no intention to establish a competition in line with the many other small competitions for example in Italy there are at least 120 such piano competitions If an international competition for pianists in Tromsø was going to be established it should have first class prestige from the very start in line with the Queen Sonja competition forsingers in Oslo Consequently we realized that the time was not right for such grand ideas in Tromsø and the plans were laid on ice until last year Financial support It was at this time that the Northern Lights Festival arranged the Piano Marathon from noon till midnight in Sparebanken s concert hall in conjunction with the inauguration of the bank s newly purchased Steinway grand piano The festival showcased nine top pianists from Norway and abroad in this event Then the idea arose that the Høgskolen and the Northern Lights Festival together would be able to establish the competition At the same time the possibility to apply for the necessary financial support for the competition arose from the regional funding programme RDA 2 point 5 concerning larger cultural events The Music Conservatory has all the facilities to arrange an international competition We have practice rooms and first rate grand pianos We have no less than eight Steinway grand pianos of which two are 2 76m concert grands Furthermore the Kulturhus has three Steinway pianos the Kunstforening
