The composition competition is an international event dedicated to Walter Ferrato, a famous pianist and teacher from Savona. The competition will be a key element of Savona International Music Festival Primavera Sacra and it will contribute to enrich an artistic proposal which has reached in 2017 its fifth 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 a concert, part of the Festival itself. Three members of Ensemble Nuove Musiche will play the winning compositions, together with pieces of music which might receive a special mention, and with other pieces of contemporary music, carefully selected by the jury.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.
The jury panel of the 2017 edition of the competition will be composed by the following members:
STEFANO GERVASONI (Composer, President of the Jury Panel)
DAGFINN KOCH (Composer – Norway)
