The path will end with the participation of the chosen ensemble in the Roero Cultural Events’s Colline in Musica Festival 2025.

01 – THE SPONSORSHIP

“The artistic path of young musicians, in recent years, has become more and more difficult; while talent, perseverance and, if possible, relationships were the prerequisites for survival in the world of concerts, in recent times other formative elements have become increasingly important too. Knowledge of marketing, of how to present oneself and maintaining contacts have become vital aspects.

I am convinced of the importance of this event and I am pleased to have accepted the patronage of the Quartet and Chamber Music Forum.”

Heide Prinzessin von Hohenzollern

02 – THE WORKSHOP

Participation in the selection for the Quartet & Chamber Music Forum is open to already formed ensembles, from the string and piano duo to the string quartet and piano quartet*, who wish to deepen their classical and contemporary repertoire.

The selected groups will have to follow 5 lessons of 3 hours each with 5 internationally renowned teachers and participate in a concert, part of the Prefestival, in a location partner of the initiative. The lessons will focus on the technique and interpretation of the specific chamber repertoire. The repertoire that will be addressed must be prepared in advance and communicated to the organizers by the end of March. Furthermore, during the workshop, meetings and conferences will be organized with important operators in the field of classical music.
