ICM Competition 2022-2023
Since 1994 the Accademia di Musica has organised the International Chamber Music Competition Pinerolo e Torino Città metropolitana, a prestigious chamber music competition that is a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions in Geneva. Every two years outstanding young musicians from all over the world come to perform in Pinerolo and Turin. The ensembles were competing for prizes totalling 23,000 euros.
Due to the Covid19 emergency and the consequent general uncertainty, we have decided on the new competition structure. On 2022 the competition carry out preselection by video recording. The jury admitted 27 ensembles to the live competition rounds, instead of the expected 25, due the exceptionally high level of the competitors. The admitted competitors have selected from the over 125 musicians (under 33) from 18 countries all over the world (Italy, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Japan, Armenia, Holland, Uruguay, Bolivia, China, Kazakistan, South Korea, Poland, Austria, Russia, USA.
From 6 to 12 March 2023, at Torino and Pinerolo, will be held the live competition in the concert hall of the Accademia di Musica (Pinerolo) and of Conservatorio “G. verdi” (Turin). All concerts will be open to the public.
