Download the call

The composition competition “Torre della Quarda” is an international event; it will be a key element of Festival Internazionale di Musica di Savona  and it will contribute to enrich an artistic proposal which has reached in 2018 its sixth edition. The principal objective of the competition is to give support to the composition of new musical pieces and to promote the creativity in the musical field. Our hope is to bring the best emerging talent of composition from all over the world to Savona.
The participation will be open to competitors from all the world countries, without limits of age, aesthetical trends and compositional styles. Our aim is to stimulate a dynamical relationship between an active audience and authors sensitive to creative innovation. The winners will receive their awards in a special ceremony during the Festival and their compositions will be played as concerts, parts of the Festival itself.
A further aim of the competition is to act as a significant occasion of cross interaction, overcoming generational and geographical divides. Different generations of composers will have the opportunity to meet and compare their various perspectives. The same will happen between musical schools of different origins, born from different cultures but sharing the universal language of sound.
The Musical Edition Da Vinci Publisher (https://amiosaka.com/da-vinci-classics/), with office in Osaka in Japan, will publish the winner musical piece. This support is further confirmation of the international profile of the competition.

STEFANO GERVASONI (Composer, President of the Jury Panel)

PIERRE RIGAUDIÈRE (Musicologist – France)

ANDREA CAVALLARI (Composer)
