The competition is held for those quartets participating in the ECMA Session - Fiesole.
This competition is the Rimbotti family’s joyous commemoration of Vittorio Emanuele who served as the first President of the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole, recalling the principles that inspired his mission: helping young people to find the way to express themselves to the fullest on the path towards excellence. The competition, which counts among its winners quartets such as Pavel Haas, Apollon Musagete, Adorno and others, awards a single first prize of € 8.000 as well as concert opportunities, including a concert for the Amici della Musica di Firenze.
