""I would like to send my heartfelt greetings to all the organizers and participants of the Tureck International Bach Competition for Young Pianists. As we all know, Bach is the cornerstone of the classical music who greatly influenced every single composer after him up to this day. Fortunately for us, Bach left a vast legacy of piano music which has been an integral part of every young pianist's education --and at the same time, one of the greatest challenges for most professional pianists. I believe that this Competition is a wonderful undertaking and hope that it will exist for many years to come."
