The International Flute Competition ” Severino Gazzelloni ” is devoted to young professional flautists. It was created and produced by the “Associazione Flautisti Italiani” and “Falaut” italian flute magazine, with the specific purpose to enhance and promote the talent of young musicians.
The competition is dedicated to Severino Gazzelloni, one of the well-known italian flautists of the last century, a charismatic figure who has significantly contributed to the development of modern techniques and broaden the flute repertoire. Keeping alive his memory and his artistic legacy, is one of our main purposes.
The Competition awards and prizes are provided by public and private sponsors that have embraced the initiative and share its spirit and objectives. The winners, in addition to cash prizes, are supported by the publication of a CD and will have the opportunity to perform several recitals presented by prestigious institutions. Since the very beginning, the high level of the Competition was a successful trade-mark recognized by the International Flute Community, and the Gazzelloni International Flute Competition is a guarantee of higher standards and quality.
Three CDs have already been published and a fourth will be out by the end of this year.
