in partnership with the Ente Regionale Teatrale del Friuli Venezia Giulia
Five unmissable concerts taking place in May, June and September at the Fazioli Concert Hall, organised in partnership with E.R.T. (Ente Regionale Teatrale – Regional Institute of Performing Arts) to put the spotlight on the pianists of the next generation and featuring the winners of prestigious international competitions.



SACILE – Friday, May 25th will mark the start of the “WINNERS 2018” concert series, devoted to young laureates of prestigious international competitions. “Since the inauguration of the Fazioli Concert Hall”, Paolo Fazioli, founder of the Italian piano company, explains, “we have wanted to devote some space to the young winners of prestigious international competitions”. These concerts, which initially took place occasionally, have already acquired a certain regularity, being first held in June (under the name of “Concerts of June”), to be later extended to include other times of the year. “Listening to these talents was such a nice and unexpected surprise that we soon felt the urge to give a coherent and organic structure to the series, Paolo Fazioli continues, “especially when we realized that these events were always more anticipated and appreciated by our audience”. Indeed, in this regard the intervention of the "Ente Regionale Teatrale del Friuli Venezia Giulia" (Regional Institute of the Performing Arts) turned out to be extremely precious, since it allowed us to give more coherence and unity to the project. "We decided to support the WINNERS series straight away and with great conviction”, E.R.T. President Alessandro Malcangi comments. “In fact, we utterly share the intentions that Fazioli puts into this project, finding they sync up seamlessly with ours”. This lucky synergy has given a precise identity to the “Winners” series, a precise physiognomy that does not leave room to misunderstandings: this is not some sort of “minor” series, on the margins of the main Fazioli Concert Hall season, but an independent entity, prestigious and noble, worthy of the attention of institutions and of the most demanding audience.

The series, consisting of five concerts and taking place from spring to autumn (25th May, 8th and 22nd June, 7th and 21st September), highlights the relationship that bonds the prestigious piano manufacturing company headquartered in Sacile with important piano competitions. This year, apart from the Premio Venezia and the Jaques Samuel Pianos Intercollegiate Competition (London), the series also features concerts by the winners of the “Halina-Czerny Stefańska” Competition (Poznań, Poland), the New Art Piano Competition of Taipei (Taiwan) and the Scottish International Piano Competition of Glasgow (Scotland).

The compelling enthusiasm of these outstanding “Winners”, together with their concentration and almost “athletic” preparation to the performance, will convey the great energy, freshness and emotion of timeless pages of the piano repertoire.
