    An important chance for the winner of the Friuli Venezia Giulia International Piano Competition 2014 has been announced by piano|fvg as a “special award”: the recording of a solo piano CD at Fazioli Concert Hall in Sacile, thanks to KNS Classical.

    KNS Classical - a classical music label based in Spain - would provide the digital publication of the CD, which would include the design and digital distribution. All expenses related to the digital publication will be in charge of KNS Classical (that will be the holder of the rights in the digital distribution), while the costs about the master recording in Sacile will be covered by piano|fvg.

    Apart from the digital distribution it would also possible to make a physical version of the CD. In this case the costs of creating the physical CDs would be in charge of the artist. However, once the CD is made, the income derived from the sales would go entirely to the artist.

      The Forum is free of charge and open to all piano|fvg competitors, and generally to young musicians and stakeholders, simply applying with the special form available from download sidebar area.
      Some scholarships (€100 each) are available for piano|fvg CEI competitors* (with the exception of Italy), who will apply the Forum: the beneficiaries will be selected by the organization of piano|fvg by the evaluation of the cv and a specific motivation letter to be added to the request form. Incoming requests from non-EU CEI Member States will be considered with particular interest.
      The program and timetable of the Forum will be soon available on the site.

    *Please note: a competitor is classified as CEI when he/she permanently depends on a sending institution based/registered in a CEI country. Nationals of CEI countries living or working for institutions outside the CEI region cannot be classified as 'CEI competitors’.
