Established in 2013 by Belgian pianist Philippe Raskin, the CFIPC mission is to encourage new generations of young pianists to transcend their own capabilities by providing an international platform.

With over 50 participants originating from more than 26 different countries and an internationally acclaimed jury in 2016, the César Franck has already established itself as a leading competition for young musicians worldwide.

The incorporation of the competition, concerts and education program as a yearly event symbolizes our commitment and passion to the advancement of culture and education.
