Host Pianos

The pianos are the biggest logistical exercise in the Competition. Over 80 pianos are required for both practice and performance. Most of the practice pianos are in private homes.  In addition to these privately-owned pianos, further instruments are specially supplied by Steinway & Sons, through their Dublin agent Pianos Plus.  These are placed in the RDS and in private homes during the Competition.

Steinway and Sons also provide the concert grands for all Competition performances, and the back-up support of their excellent specialist technicians.
