"In Musica" • Roma International Music Festival and Piano Competition

Dear friends!

As Artistic Director I am honored to present the second edition of “In Musica” Roma International Festival and Piano Competition which will be held between 17th and 22nd September 2020 in some of the most important and beautiful places in the Italian Capital Rome.

This event will be held as part of the preliminary stage of the 2021 Malta International Piano Competition. Five best competitors from our competition will be invited to Valletta in 2021 to compete for an astonishing 300,000 Euro total prize fund – with the first prize at 200,000 Euro. More information can be found at www.14waystomalta2021.eu

This is a major international event in Rome Caput Mundi, a place of history, where all the arts meet for centuries and blend together creating a unique cultural intensity in the world.

Beauty, history, culture, art, charm, mystery, discovery… and delicious food! All this and much more is Rome.

We are looking forward to discover new talents and to significantly mark their career.
Rome has an appreciative audience that will have the opportunity to listen live to different repertoire, especially for piano and orchestra. In addition, all the stages of the competition will be open to the general public who will enjoy the skill and comparison between extraordinary pianists of the new generation, coming from all over the world.

My sincere thanks to the European Foundation for Support of Culture for having chosen me and entrusted me as Artistic Director of "In Musica" Roma Festival 2020, the new world of great pianists!
