Since 1979 the Foundation also contributed actively to the promotion of the triennial “International Emmanuel Durlet Prize for Piano”, organized by the “Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen” (former Royal Flemish Conservatoire of Music). This prize was founded in 1978 at the initiative of Juliane Castro, former pupil of Emmanuel Durlet.

These activities, also supported by the “Cantabile Piano Competition for the Youth”, enables the Foundation to promote and stimulate the performance of the works of Emmanuel Durlet all over the world. More than 200 Belgian Music Academies and 80 Belgian and foreign Conservatoires of Music make use of the works and Etudes of Emmanuel Durlet to form young pianists.
