Background: The first International Piano Competition Košice was held in 1993 and up until its fifth year the competition was organized annually. Later the organizing committee decided to change it to biennial cycle.

The aim of competition is to support young talented children and enable them to represent themselves on the stage, not only in Slovakia, but also abroad.

From its very beginning the International Piano Competition Art Director has been Peter Toperczer, Dr. h. c., Rector emeritus at AMU in Prague, a native of Košice. After his sudden death Peter Breiner, composer, pianist and conductor took over the position as art director and from 2013 Professor Toperczer's son, Peter Tperczer jr., will be art director of the International Piano Competition Košice. The competition is now dedicated to his father thus being renamed into Peter Toperczer International Piano Competition.
