Genesis of IPM Competition

Concours International de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne

Let us take you on a journey that began in France, where Béatrice Quoniam and Pascal Nemirovski established the Concours National de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne in 2006. Thanks to the support of Mayor Patrice Pagny and Deputy Mayor Francoise Copeland, the competition quickly grew in popularity, and by 2009, it had become the Concours International de Piano de Lagny-Sur-Marne, attracting pianists from around the world.

Concours International de Piano Antoine de Saint-Eupéry

The success of the Lagny-Sur-Marne competition inspired Quoniam and Nemirovski to embark on a new project in 2017, creating the Concours International de Piano Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in Saint-Priest, France. This competition was renamed to honour 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 the Artist Manager for the winners, and the competition continued to attract the best and brightest pianists from around the world. Although the final edition of the Saint-Priest competition was held in 2019, the legacy of these incredible musical events lives on.
