Special Berlin Award Selection

All those enrolled to the Virtuoso & Belcanto instrumental specialisation courses (piano, violin, viola and cello) will be able to take part to a prestigious selection for concerts at the Berlin Philharmonic and other Italian and international concert institutions.

The repertoire must include compositions indicated in the following links: piano, violin, viola, (maximum length ca. 20 min.)

The 2021 selection will nominate who will play in the 2022-23 Populäre Konzerte season of the Berlin Philharmonie. The winner will perform as a soloist, accompanied by the Sinfonie Orchester Berlin.

Other young musicians will also be selected for potential invitation to hold concerts for other Italian and international concert institutions.

The Selection Jury Committee will be comprised by the Artistic Director of the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival, some Professors of the Virtuoso & Belcanto advanced courses, at least one representative of the Konzertdirektion – Prof. Victor Hohenfels – organiser of the Populäre Konzerte season of the Berlin Philharmonie, and by other guests, including music critics and/or organisers and musical promoters.
