Wibi Soerjadi to replace jury member Idil Biret

Unfortunately pianist Idil Biret has been forced to cancel her appearance as juror at the 12th Liszt Competition Utrecht, due to health issues. Netherlands most famous pianist Wibi Soerjadi has graciously offered to step in to take her place in the jury. Soerjadi rose to fame after becoming a winner of the second edition of the Liszt Competition in 1989. Next to Soerjadi the jury will consist of Nino Gvetadze, Igor Roma, Cyprien Katsaris, Frederic Chiu, Leslie Howard, Andrea Bonatta and chairman Alexander Rinnooy Kan.
The masterclass that Idil Biret was scheduled to give to young Dutch piano-talents on Friday 27 March, will be taken over by maestro Cyprien Katsaris.
