Final with orchestra of the 73rd Viotti International Music Competition

73rd Viotti International Music Competition


An event of international scope, the Viotti Competition, from the first post-war period to the present day, has accompanied the city’s cultural life with extraordinary constancy, bringing some of the most legendary musicians of our time to Vercelli, both as competitors and as jurors, and nurturing the knowledge and awareness in the artistic and musical spheres of several generations of Vercelli citizens. The contribution that the Viotti Music Competition has made to international musical life is significant and universally recognised. The oldest ‘section’, the piano section, established in 1950, returns to characterise the 2023 edition of the Competition with the certainty of welcoming some of the most talented keyboard virtuosos to Vercelli to compete for the final title. The absolute novelty of this edition is the participation in the Finale on 14 October at the Teatro Civico of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano ‘Giuseppe Verdi’.
