The Winner of the Thornton Pianos Competition.

After thousands of entries, Hot Press Magazine and Thornton Pianos have named the winner of a stunning white Ritmüller Modern 112 piano. A compact, stylish upright piano that’s suitable for all players, the Ritmüller Modern 112 is taller than typical pianos of this type allowing for a larger soundboard and string length, and enhanced tone and dynamic range.

The competition sparked an incredible response from people across Ireland from young aspiring musicians to big, music-loving families; and from teachers on a mission to professional players reaching for the stars.

In their entries, people reflected on the role of music as a crucial form of expression in their lives, and also of escape – something that became even more intense during the lockdown.

The judges narrowed the entries down to 20 finalists, ultimately and unanimously selecting piano teacher/performer Gemma Cox as the winner of the Ritmüller Modern 112.
