Tomas Dratva Foto Int EPTAEPTA Switzerland will celebrate its 40th birthday! We are delighted to be holding the 46th International EPTA Conference in Switzerland to mark this occasion. The conference will take place in Lucerne, in the heart of Switzerland, in the newly built, architecturally fascinating premises of the Lucerne School of Music. The conference will start on Thursday afternoon 29 February and end on Sunday 3 March 2024 after the morning session.

With the theme CHANGES - Visions and Evolutions in Piano Music, we focus on the unceasing developments and innovations in the history and present of piano music and piano pedagogy. Where do revolutions and historical changes occur, which developments and evolutions proceed slowly and silently? How do composers, performers and pedagogues respond to a constantly changing world?

Pianists, educators and musicologists are welcome to submit their proposals for lectures, lecture-recitals, workshops and discussion panels. We look forward to welcome you in Lucerne!

Tomas Dratva - President EPTA Switzerland
