Roma - Girolamo Fantini International Trumpet Competition

AIMART initiated the “Fantini Competition” in 2017 with the mission of offering a life-changing opportunity of growth and artistic development to the “Under35” generation of classical musicians.

Born from an idea of Edda Silvestri, Director of AIMART and Giuliano Sommerhalder, Principal Trumpet of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, international soloist and teacher at AIMART, the Fantini Competition has prestige, prizes and structure that rank it in the top sector of classical music competitions.

The "Girolamo Fantini" International Trumpet Competition was founded in 2016 and held twice, in 2017 and 2019. It was designed taking the competitor's perspective as a guide, and its regulations boast sophisticated measures to guarantee absolute transparency in the judging process.

Also, it has a characteristic second round in which competitors can propose a wider array of musical languages rather than just "mainstream" classical, including historic performance, jazz, folk music, orchestral repertoire and more.
