Composition Commission issued to Aureliano Cattaneo
Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition, Bolzano, Italy
To celebrate the 150th anniversary year of its namesake the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition will be holding its own festival. As part of this project a composition commission will be issued to Aureliano Cattaneo supported by the EvS Music Foundation. Together with the IRCAM the BUSONI FESTIVAL 2016 will premiere the composition for piano, computer music design and sound engineering with the working title “CORDA per pianoforte ed elettronica” in August of this year in Bolzano. At its piano festival the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition will therefore send out a strong signal for Ferruccio Busoni’s cosmopolitan stance and timeless significance as a defender of open and searching thought beyond the well-trodden repertoire paths of the international music competition circus.
