“Maria Giubilei” International Piano Competition (up to 25 years of age)
Maximum length: 25 minutes
It must include at least the first tempo of a sonata from Haydn, Clementi, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and at least a free piece by Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Bartok, Scriabin, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov. The programme can be filled up to the maximum time with pieces at the contestant’s discretion.
“Paola Baschetti” International Piano Prize (up to 35 years of age)
Maximum length: 40 minutes
The programme must include pieces by at least two different authors of different periods and styles.
Contemporary Author Prize
If the contestant decides to include one of the following pieces in the above-mentioned programme (still for the total length of 40’), he or she will be able to compete for the Contemporary Author Prize:
Andrea Agostini Moth for piano
Alessandra Ciccaglioni Studio su Afro n°1 Pietra serena
Those willing to take part in both sections – 18th “Maria Giubilei” International Competition and “Paola Baschetti” International Piano Prize, are allowed to repeat only the pieces partly (not fully) performed in the first programme (“Maria Giubilei” Competition), but on condition that they are fully performed in the second programme (“Paola Baschetti” Prize) (eg. if the programme for the “Maria Giubilei” International Competition includes the first tempo of a sonata by Beethoven, it is possible to perform it again at “Paola Baschetti” International Piano Prize only if fully played).
If the programmes exceed the prescribed time, the board has the faculty to interrupt the execution.
Playing from memory is required in both sections, apart from pieces by contemporary composers, for which it is nonetheless highly recommended.
