PREMIO TUSCANY
Eminent role of the Dubrovnik pianist


The eminent international competition Premio Toscana - Citta di Cascina took place in the Tuscan town of Cascina in the province of Pisa throughout the past week. Competitors from all over the world came to the old, charming, Tuscan city under the baton of the artistic leadership of one of the finest pianists in the world, the Argentinian artist Daniel Rivera, and in the impeccable organization of Giovanna Pellai, the active participation of the Municipality of Cascina, especially the Head of Culture of the city of Bice del Giudice, as well as the Red Cross of the city which is involved in a complex and great organization full of liveliness, professionalism and enthusiasm.



Dubrovnik pianist Ivana Marija Vidović was on the jury for the first time, and at the personal invitation of the world-famous pianist Daniel Rivera, as the very first Croatian from Dubrovnik to join such jury and to decide the winners in all categories for solo piano. In addition to the Argentinian pianist Daniel Rivera, the jury included the president of the jury, the German pianist, organist, conductor and president of the Schubert Competition in Germany, Roland Proell, and two Italian colleagues, Federica Monti and Vincenzo Marrone d'Alberti.

From the age of 5 to 35, extraordinary talents lined up, and the last category, which gave a chance to already established young artists, is called the Talents Category.

The absolute winners are two pianists, the younger 21-year-old Luca Cianciotta from Italy and 33-year-old Danylo Saienko from Ukraine, who performed in Cavtat last September as part of the Epidaurus Festival. The performances of the holder of the second prize, the Italian Edoardo Mancini and the Macedonian Teodora Kapinkovska, were also noted, as well as many other gifted young pianists who have a bright future ahead of them.



In this age, when the ability to listen is less and less present, it is wonderful to meet and listen to extraordinary talents who are saving the soul of today's world. The task of the jury is therefore very important, and the Dubrovnik pianist Ivana Marija Vidović not only does her job with all her enthusiasm and skill in a brilliant way, but also spreads the name and beauty of her city of Dubrovnik everywhere she goes.

The competition ended with a final concert of an extraordinary level in the totally full hall of the Peppino Impastato National Library in the heart of the town of Cascina, to the joy of the prize winners, organisers, jury and the large audience.
