Wilhelm Kempff



Foundation portrait

The Wilhelm-Kempff-Kulturstiftung (Italian: Fondazione Culturale Wilhelm Kempff) supports art and culture, especially in the field of music. In the spirit of Wilhelm Kempff, the first priority of the foundation is to promote outstanding interpretation of piano music. By fulfilling those purposes the foundation also wants to honour and cultivate the memory of Wilhelm Kempff.

In particular the foundation supports piano master classes held in Positano, Italy, and cares for the preservation of the foundation’s instruments of Wilhelm Kempff’s estate.
