Paul Badura-Skoda

From the very beginning of the festival Paul Badura-Skoda has been involved as a musician and human being of exceptional qualities. He inspired our students by letting them experience a life full of music making, teaching, writing and thinking about music. In September 2013 the City Government of Tarragona has awarded him with a special honorary sculpture of the city for his exceptional contribution to the music culture of the Tarragona region. Paul has been with us in the 2011 MusicFestival, 2012 Legendary Masters festival, and the 2013 MusicFestival. In 2010 he was chair of the Jury of the first edition of his own international Paul Badura-Skoda Piano competition – www.badura-skoda.cc
