VI CONCORSO PIANISTICO "CARLO TAVASANI"

Date: 9.1.2005
Source: Custody of the Holy Land


From the 7th to the 9th of January 2005 the VI Piano Competition "Carlo Tavasani" took place, organized by the Magnificat Institute, the school of music of the Custody of the Holy Land. At the competition, organized into age brackets from ages 6 to 30, comprising eight categories, 85 Palestinians participated, but at the International Prize, given by the Municipality of Rome, 11 Israelis and Palestinians participated.

The Piano Competition is dedicated to Carlo Tavasani (born in Cormons in 1943, and died in Treviso in 1999), an energetic supporter of cultural and artistic initiatives. Carlo's mother, Mrs. Anita, has sponsored the Piano Competition for the last 6 years.

The 2005 competition had many winners; first prize for every category was won by the following participants, which played at the final concert on the 9th of January. They are:

Hikmat Ata Qaymari, Sasha Khoury, Amir Elayan, Shaimaa' Al'Sharif, Samer Sifri, Mai Mourad, Steve Majlaton, Nizar Al-Chater, Fadi Deeb.

The Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land enriched the competition with a prize for the best duet. The Qattan Foundation of Ramaleh offered a prize of $500 and an invitation to have a concert to the best piano accompanist.

Finally, the Municipality of Rome gave an international prize of 1,000 Euros entitled "Rome for Jerusalem": the aim of the prize is clearly that of contributing, by means of music, to the understanding and to the peace of the two people. In an impartial judgment, the prize was won by a Palestinian from Nazareth, Bishara Harouny, and by an Israeli, Netanel Bass.

Present at the concert were the Honorable Ali Elayan, secretary of the Minister of Qrea; the Palestinian Ambassador in Holland, His Excellency Yousef I. Habbab, the wife of the French Consulate, many other authorities, along with a large number of other people crowding in. The Father Custos (Guardian) of the Holy Land, Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa, O.F.M., gave out the prize for the Custody. Correspondents from RAI and from TelePace filmed the concert and interviewed the young pianists, the teachers, and the Father Custos.
