The connection between BINDER and a piano may seem unusual at first glance. But a closer look reveals that both worlds are characterised by precision and excellence. The precise mechanics and craftsmanship required in the construction of pianos reflect the technical progress and accuracy in the design of our simulation cabinets - values that are also of the utmost importance to BINDER. The manufacture of our simulation cabinets requires extensive know-how, dedication and passion to ensure excellence.
BINDER supported the renowned Ferruccio Busoni Piano Competition as a sponsor, as we strongly believe in the development of creative talent, as well as deepening ties with the cultural community. As a first-class training company, the promotion of talented young people is an important concern for BINDER. Therefore, we not only support young talents in our company, but also beyond, as outstanding performance is our top priority.
The competition registered almost 600 applicants in the selection process, in which 110 candidates were chosen. In the end, three outstanding finalists were selected from this talented group to represent the pinnacle of this music competition.
The 64th International Ferruccio Busoni Piano Competition offered an impressive finale with Arsenii Mun winning the Busoni Prize for his exceptional interpretation of Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Anthony Ratinov and Ryota Yamazaki also received prizes for their outstanding piano performances. For the first time in over 28 years, the Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Prize was also awarded. The jury consisted of renowned pianists and artists under the direction of Ingrid Fliter.

Just as BINDER has a global presence, this competition attracts participants and spectators from all over the world.
