WINNERS: IV EDIZIONE
WINNERS | THE PIANISTS OF THE NEXT GENERATION
In partnership with ERT (Regional Theatrical Institution) of Friuli Venezia Giulia
Friday 3, 10, 24 and 31 May, 7:30 pm
Friday, May 3rd marked the start, at the Fazioli Concert Hall, of the “WINNERS 2019” concert series, devoted to young piano talents awarded at prestigious international competitions. The concerts, taking place almost every Friday of the month of May, started at 7:30 pm. These year, the the following competitions was represented: Jaques Samuel Pianos Intercollegiate Competition (3 May: JunLin Wu), Rina Sala Gallo International Piano Competition in Monza (10 May: Igor Andreev), the Alexander Scriabin Competition in Grosseto (24 May: Cunmo Yin) and the Premio Venezia (31 May: Gabriele Strata and Giorgio Trione Bartoli, first and second prize).
For the fourth year in a row, FAZIOLI and the E.R.T. (Regional Theatrical Institution) of Friuli Venezia Giulia join forces to provide continuity to a noble common intent: reserving a prestigious space to young piano talents of different nationalities. The pianists of the new generation who perform in the “Winners” concert series are identified among the laureates of competitions that, for precise choice of the respective Artistic Directions, foresee the use of the FAZIOLI concert grand. However, this is certainly not the only criterion: in order to receive the appropriate reassurances on the level of the young artists that we summon to Sacile, we always refer to competitions imposing on their candidates the performance of demanding repertoires and the ability to move easily among different stylistic periods. Purposely, we favour those winners who have not yet performed in our region. Experience has shown that we can place high expectations on these talents: so far, every “Winners” series has had wonderful surprises in store for us. At every single concert, we filled up on that particular freshness and energy typical of those artists who are living the exciting moment of their career launch.
Our wish is that our audience will keep supporting us along this path where, despite the lack of that kind of confidence assured by the “big name”, we can have access to a different kind of emotion, no less fulfilling: discovering new stars, cheering for them and betting on their future.
