Paul Pollei
(1936-2013)

You can’t say the name “Paul” without the word “Piano” in the same breath. In 1976 Paul founded the Gina Bachauer International Piano competition, which has grown to become the second largest piano competition in the United States. He was a founding member of the American Piano Quartet and a jury member for many national and international piano competitions throughout the world. As a devoted teacher he presented workshops, lectures and masterclasses to numerous pianists around the globe. He was very active in the work of the National Conference on Piano Pedagogy, the Music Teachers National Association, and the World Federation of Music Competitions.
