First International Piero Farulli Competition for Junior String Quartets

Fiesole School of Music

October 23-25, 2020

The First International Piero Farulli Competition for Junior String Quartet is dedicated to young quartets (average age: 20 years) and is the first international model of this kind. Experiencing music through the high road of the string quartet means discovering the deepest secret of this art: making music together! Playing in a quartet means to learn to communicate among peers, to become acquainted with one another, to learn to respect one another’s rhythm, to breathe together, to learn to listen in order to begin communicating.

The jury will be led by Bruno Giuranna, violist and chamber music player of world renown, as well as a good friend and admirer of Maestro Farulli. He is president of E.S.T.A Europe. He will be joined by Helen Poggio (Quiroga Quartet – Spain), Edoardo Zosi (Adorno Quartet – Italy), Misia Sofia Jannoni (Werther Quartet – Italy), Daniel Palmizio (Italy).

The Competition will take place at the Fiesole School of Music on the 23rd and 24th of October 2020. Prizes amount to a total of €7000 plus a performance as guests of the Florence Friends of Music Association.

A total of €7,400 will be awarded in prizes: €3,200 – first prize, €2,000 – second prize, €1,000 – third prize. There will also be a special award of €800 for the best performance of a winning composition from the previous edition of the Piero Farulli International Composition Competition” and, finally, an “encouragement” award of €400.00 for the youngest quartet to participate in the competition.

Submissions (including video material) must reach us by and no later than September 29, 2020.

On October 25, 2020, the winning quartets will perform in a public concert for the Florence Friends of Music (Amici della Musica) in the chamber hall of the Teatro della Pergola in Florence.
