The Ruhr Piano Festival has been run as a separate foundation since 1 January 2011.
This forward-looking concept for the festival was developed by Dr. Wulf H. Bernotat and Dr. Winfried Materna during the time as moderators. Through this measure, the successful continuation of the festival as a leading cultural project of the Initiativkreis Ruhr is guaranteed. In addition, the foundation structure opens up new financial scope for the festival. This reorganisation is intended to secure the festival’s acknowledged high and sustainable quality and the associated radiance in the future.
