Concours International de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne
Come with us on a journey that started in France, where Béatrice Quoniam, the General Director, and Pascal Nemirovski, the Artistic Director, founded the Concours National de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne in 2006. With the help of Mayor Patrice Pagny and Deputy Mayor Francoise Copeland, the competition gained popularity rapidly, and by 2009 it had transformed into the Concours International de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne, attracting pianists from all corners of the globe.

Concours International de Piano Antoine de Saint-Eupéry
Following the success of the Lagny-Sur-Marne competition, Quoniam and Nemirovski embarked on a new project in 2017, establishing the Concours International de Piano Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in Saint-Priest, France. The competition was renamed to pay tribute to the legendary French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and Mayor Gilles Gascon played an instrumental role in bringing it to life. Isaure Equilbey was appointed as the Artist Manager for the winners, and the competition continued to attract the most talented pianists worldwide. While the final edition of the Saint-Priest competition took place in 2019, the legacy of these exceptional musical events endures.
