PIERO FARULLI INTERNATIONAL COMPOSITION COMPETITION

 PIERO FARULLI INTERNATIONAL COMPOSITION COMPETITION
Summary:String Quartet Competition
Deadline: 30 June 2019
Date Posted: 20 December 2018
Details: Third Edition 2019

Applications are open for the International Composition Competition for Junior String Quartet dedicated to the memory of Piero Farulli, viola of the legendary Quartetto Italiano and founder of the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole.

Important news regarding the Jury: Giacomo Manzoni will be the chairman of the Jury whose members include Adriano Guarnieri (I), Joerg Widmann(D), Daniel Herrera (CH) and Chia-Ying Lin, young composer from Taiwan who was the first winner of the first Competition 2015 and now is doing an absolutely brilliant international career.

The third Edition is proud to host, yet again, a Jury of the highest level!
The aim of the competition is to increase and enrich the virtually non-existent repertoire for young and very young players of stringed instruments, who will be encouraged and enabled to play music together using contemporary musical language.

Prizes
There will be two prizes of €2.000 each.
1. Primary or intermediate level of instrumental difficulty (Level A)
2. Advanced level of instrumental difficulty (Level B).
The competition enjoys the patronage of the President of the Republic and the Municipality of Florence. It is being held in collaboration with the Orchestra della Toscana who will be managing the applications for the Competition from her headquarter c/o Teatro Verdi in Florence where the Jury’s final meeting will be held in September 2017.

Casa Ricordi will publish the two winning compositions, which they will add to the teaching series Piero Farulli per il quartetto d’archi (Piero Farulli for String Quartets). The Utopian philosophy of Piero Farulli was that of bringing music to everyone; he wanted to fill stadiums with concerts of Beethoven’s quartets! This is the perspective of the Competition, which last edition received 60 entries from composers from all over the world.

30th June 2019 deadline for applications .
