The Gilmore Awards
The Gilmore Artist Award recognizes extraordinary piano artistry with some of the most generous financial support given in the musical arts. The $300,000 award is conferred every four years to an international pianist of any age and nationality following a rigorous and confidential selection process.
Sometimes referred to as music’s answer to the MacArthur Foundation “genius grants,” the Gilmore Artist Award is made through a non-competitive process. Pianists are nominated by a large and diverse group of international music professionals. An anonymous, six-member Artistic Advisory Committee appraises the nominees over a period of time and assesses their musicianship and performing abilities through numerous performances under varying conditions. Throughout the four-year process, candidates for the Award are unaware they are under consideration.
