Due to health problems, pianist Nelson Freire will not take part in the work of the Jury of the Chopin Competition in Warsaw. Martha Argerich, bound by an enduring friendship with Nelson Freire, decided to be with him in this difficult time. Therefore, she will not play at the inauguration of the competition, and will not sit on the Jury.

They will be replaced by Arthur Moreira-Lima, the winner of the 2nd prize in 1965.

87 pianists will compete in the Finals (3-18 October), more than half of them being of Asian descent.
