The Competition

10 – 14 OCTOBER 2018

Being this the twenty-sixth edition, the prestigious International Music Competition – Vittoria Caffa Righetti Prize has become one of the most important rendezvous in the Piedmont musical panorama, which brings to Cortemilia young musicians and performers from all Europe and world, interested in increasing their fame and cultural and experience fund. The competition lasts for a week, and takes place in the beautiful frame of the San Francesco Church, behind the walls of the Franciscan convent. Six are the Sections (Piano, Solo Strings, Chamber Ensembles, Composition, Secondary School’s Students and Public and Private Music School’s Students) with multiple categories from 7 to 35 years. Also relevant are the prizes and the scholarships given by the supporting members. As always, the artistic direction is taken care by Mr Luigi Giachino while the Foreman of the Jury for several years has been Mr Marcello Abbado. Many of the previous editions winners, also thanks to the participation to the International Music Competition, are already members of important orchestras or have already made several attendances in public and private televisions.
