Rule of Competition Elsa Pozzoli – Ed. 5

Alongside the Ettore Pozzoli International Piano Competition, an event reserved for young pianists under the age of 18 is proposed. Now in its fifth edition, the competition (originally called “il Pozzolino”) is now dedicated to the memory of Elsa Pozzoli, daughter of maestro Ettore.

The final phase of the V Edition of the “Tribute to Elsa Pozzoli” Competition will take place in Seregno on 23 and 24 September 2023. A pre-selection in “remote” mode is foreseen: three competitors will be admitted to the final round for each of the four categories in which the Competition is divided.

Pianists born on or after 1.1.2007 can participate in the competition.
