Hi
   Congratulations to the winners, jean-louis valero, pijey, Naej and Giwasaki. You are so talented and creative. Well done. And thanks to all participants for interesting music with Pianoteq. And thanks to those who voted on my video. The joy of making music grows every year when I take part in these competitions. Every year I try to compose a new piece of music that hopefully create some connection with the listener. So, thank you, Philippe, Niclas and all at Modartt for Pianoteq and this yearly video contest!
   By the way, every year before, for me, I found it very difficult to vote, all contributions are so good. But this year when I read the rules, I noticed the mention ”the originality of the composition”, and it finally came to mind what it mean (meaning the quality of being new and inventive, something that has never been done, never created, never thought of before, unusual, being good in a different and appealing way). That helped me to vote in another way this year, it was easier. Just thought it is worth mentioning, maybe it can help someone else next year.
With best regards
Pianoteqenthusiast

Congratulations to the winners and all contestants!  I greatly enjoyed the videos, especially enjoyed the happy birthday one...kept me guessing to see which composer and which composition comes next!  Brilliant!

For me, the annual Pianoteq competition is a significant event of the year that almost marks the passage of time.  Thank you Pianoteq for your continued awesome products and organizing the competition!

Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2016 - the winning entries

My heartfelt thanks to all of you !
By an extraordinary coincidence ( «  fortuitorum concursio «  in the style of Cicero ) my unpretentious improvisations mark the tenth anniversary of Pianoteq and the birthday of version 5 which reconciled me with digital pianos. What a joy it has been to play again the impressive Blüthner that determined my  destiny  in my teacher’s house when I was six years old ! And also the beloved Pleyel, a baby grand piano offered by my parents…
A big hug to the  «  Groupe des Cinq » (Guillaume, Pommier, Fogwall, Joly and Chabassier) and Happy Birthday to Pianoteq !

Congratulations to all the winners! And thank all the contestants and voters! Although I can't watch the videos or vote for any of them, I'm still sure that every contestant was trying their best.

By the way, are the coupons sent by mail? It doesn't seem I have received it yet.

That is correct, the email bounced back to us. Could you please provide another email address we can send the value coupon code to?
