The Solinaria Youth Festival is hosting a online competition for pianists.
Solinaria is a festival that aims to support young musicians on their long journey of creative growth. Solinaria’s second edition is therefore expanding its scope to include an international competition for pianists.
The Solinaria team realizes how important it is for budding talents to grow through the challenge of a competition. There will be a special emphasis on music from the Balkans as a way of supporting the local culture.
Pianists will be divided into seven age groups and will compete in two categories:
- Category A: two piano pieces from different time periods – a work by a European composer and a work of the candidate’s choosing; and
- Category B: a work by a Balkan composer and a work of the candidate’s choosing.
The grand prize is participation in a concert with an orchestra in Bulgaria in the 2022/2023 season.
