Cecil Aronowitz International Viola Competition and Festival

We are delighted to have Robert Markham, Anthony Hewitt, and Charles Matthews confirmed as the official competition pianists for the 2020 CAIVC. These three pianists, provided by Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, know the viola repertoire inside out and have vast competition experience - please note that no competitor will be permitted to bring their own pianist for the competition.

It will not be possible prior to the time of the competition to select who will play for you, this will be arranged between the competition management and directly with the pianists, but, you will of course be made aware of the name of your duo pianist before the event.
