The Louisiana International Pian

The Louisiana International Piano Competition and Festival (LIPC), is pleased to present Dizhou Zhao, China, as the Grand Prize winner of the 2007 event. From an initial group of over 100 pianists from 21 countries, Zhao, demonstrating exceptional skill and artistry, established himself as the clear winner. This recording by Classical Records, Moscow, Russia, stands as a testament to his talent and effort.
Professor Nikita Fitenko envisioned a piano competition in Louisiana, USA, to bring world class music to Louisiana. With the help of local support and a partnership with the Rapides Symphony, the LIPC was born. It's mission remains to identify, reward, and promote young talented pianists from all over the world, and Zhao certainly met these criteria.
We hope that you will enjoy this recording and be reminded that pianists are, in many ways, the keepers of music. They are living repositories of the extraordinary richness of classical music, which remains to be savored by the listening public now and in the future.

David J. Holcombe, MD
Committee Chairman
