REGULATIONS

The Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival educational programme is dedicated to the best young musicians from all over the world.

All Virtuoso & Belcanto competitions are exclusively reserved for participants to the master classes. Therefore, registration to the competitions is not allowed for non-participants to the classes.

The registration to the competitions will take place directly at the secretariat desk, by 20 July 2021.

The Virtuoso & Belcanto advanced course educational programme is dedicated to:

  • piano
  • violin
  • viola
  • cello
  • chamber music

All Virtuoso & Belcanto educational programmes have a limited number of participants. Once the maximum number of participants is reached, a waiting list/ranking of eligible candidates will be established, from which applicants may later be selected.

The registration process will only be completed after payment of the relevant enrolment fees.

It is possible to apply to both the instrument course and chamber music programme.

All students on the waiting list can be admitted as auditors. Registration as an auditor is allowed. Auditors will be able to attend all scheduled lessons and all scheduled public events. Likewise, those enrolled in an instrumental or chamber music programme will be able to attend all the other lessons as auditors.
