The main novelty of this edition is the category ACCORDION [ on] STRING, a special section of the competition reserved for students of accordion and composition classes. Five compositions that will have the honor to be proposed in the first performance with the string quartet of the London Royal Academy of Music in collaboration between PIF 2015 and Maestro Owen Murray.

Another new feature is the addition of the third round in the Category Premio, which consists of the performance of “The forest music” (by Roberto Molinelli) with the string orchestra of the Conservatory of Pescara.
