Il Concorso Internazionale di Interpretazione musicale Marcello Pontillo – Firenze previsto nel novembre 2020 è stato spostato allo stesso periodo del 2021 per le incertezze in ordine a restrizioni di viaggi, spostamenti, organizzazione relativi alla situazione sanitaria mondiale. Dispiaciuti della circostanza diamo appuntamento ad una più ampia edizione 2021.
La Direzione Artistica del Concorso
The Marcello Pontillo – Florence International Music Interpretation Competition scheduled for November 2020 has been moved to the same period of 2021 due to uncertainties regarding travel, travel and organization restrictions related to the world health situation. Sorry for the fact, we are making an appointment for a larger 2021 edition.The Artistic Direction of the Competition
Suoni Riflessi, Sound reflections, when music encounters life. This is what best describes the philosophy of the Festival. A festival that celebrates 17 years of existence and of successes, featuring a formula that is always different and lively. Music is the most intense and personal art that man has produced, a direct expression between souls and generations, through times, places and distances. It does not need translation, but only a spiritual and intellectual will to exist. Suoni Riflessi, Sound reflections therefore means investigating what music has produced in our consciousness and everything that has inspired musical creation. Our every experience can be translated into musical stimuli and it is necessary to enter into this fascinating cultural aspect to better understand our art. The musician is no longer just a skilled performer of beautiful musical pages isolated from the history of humanity but becomes a mediator of culture.
After years of enthusiastic work and increasingly stimulating experiences we wanted to expand these convictions in a program involving young musicians who face the difficult world of musical interpretation. Our competition stands as a new and different reference point in at least in two respects: each competitor, whether a soloist or a musical group, is required to devise a project that has a musicological line, promoting the audience’s understanding of Music and the ability to enter into its most hidden secrets.
After two rounds of selection entrusted to a jury of eminent personalities of the musical world, the audience of Suoni Riflessi, Sound reflections will determine the final victory in the concluding round of the competition, thus confirming the value of communication between performer and listeners.
In this way two of the most important aspects of music are demonstrated: the cultural value as a testament to an extreme and refined art, and the ability of the interpreter to communicate these values.
The winners will receive cash prizes, but also, and especially, concerts in various Italian and foreign musical and cultural institutions.
