2020 PIF Classic & Ensemble Composition for Accordion Competition Opens - Italy

PIF logo
The 2020 PIF Classic & Ensemble Composition for Accordion Competition is now open. This year the competition organisers have chosen an unprecedented, agile and highly contemporary formation. A modern rhythmic section combined with a section of standard woods to interpret the annual theme of the festival: “All the Colors of the World”.

This subject was chosen to represent the evolution of the accordion in modern times and to encourage its integration in contemporary classical music. The regulation (while not distorting traditional writing), acts as a stimulus for new generations of composers to create new orchestrations and new sounds.

Competition requirements:

Instruments include: accordion, piano (electronic keyboard option), contrabass, percussion 1 (chosen by the composer), percussion 2 (chosen by the composer), flute (ottavino option), oboe, Bb Clarinet (sax option any type), horn in F and bassoon.

The composer must take into account that the winning piece will be performed by the candidates admitted to the third round of the classic award category (2020).

Duration: must be between a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 8 minutes

Must contain at least one part “solo” for accordion.

Soloists will perform only one rehearsal with the orchestra before the final performance
There are no registration fees.

Composers are invited to enter online on the PIF site by April 20th, 2020 in PDF format (score WITHOUT NAME OF THE AUTHOR and score WITH NAME, the detached parts will be requested later) and an MP3 audio demo performed live or through music software. If the piece is composed by several artists, the recording must be made in the name of the main composer, indicating all the other names on the score.

Sylvia PagniAccordionist Sylvia Pagni performed a concert entitled “Amami a Swing Project” at the Teatro Manzoni in Milan on January 7th, 2020.

The concert, which was well received by the audience, included pieces from her upcoming CD “Sylvia Pagni Amami a Swing Project” which will be released this year, thanks to the collaboration of musicians Giorgio Secco, Fabio Crespiatico, Max Furian, Mark Harris, Gabriele Comeglio, Raffaele Kohler and Luciano Macchia.

Sylvia Pagni opened the show with "The Flight of the Bumblebee", demonstrating her mastery on the piano by playing almost at the speed of Guinness World Records. She then continued with "Ping and Pong" (a fast paced swing piece), then "Needless Solitude – Love Me" (Bepop).

Sylvia Pagni also sang along with two choristers Antonio Galbiati and Deborah Falanga who gave a swinging and sensual interpretation of Jessica Rabbit and Diana Krall styles.

Sylvia Pagni then recalled her time at the "Teatro La Scala in Milan" by playing two pieces of classical music on the piano before leaving the stage.

She then reappeared with her accordion to play “Libertango” and “Oblivion” (by Piazzolla) before once again returning to the piano to play "Musica Musica".

Sylvia Pagni and her musicians (pictured below) were overcome with emotion amid the standing ovation and pleasure the audience showed at their performance.
