The city of Vittorio Veneto has decided to resume organizing the Vittorio Veneto Violin Competition, after a few years in which it did not take place.
This is going to be the 32nd edition and for the first time it will open to young violinists under 27 years old, from all Europe.
For this reason, this is going to be an important new beginning, a cultural and international relaunch of a music event that was born in 1962 and that over time has hosted in Vittorio Veneto generations of young violinists, many of whom have started their successful careers as concert performers especially thanks to the Vittorio Veneto Violin Competition.
One of these is Maestro Francesco De Angelis (winner of the competition in 1993), first violin of the Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala in Milan, who was entrusted with the artistic direction of the 2020 edition.
The prize is open to all violinists with citizenship of one of the member states of the European Union born after 1 January 1994. For further information and registration forms please visit www.violinovittorioveneto.it
