After joining the Chopin Competition in Warsaw (2010) and theTchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (2011) as technical partner, FAZIOLI has been proud to accept the invitation from Tel Aviv for the 14th edition of "The Rubinstein", where the competitors are given the possibility to chose among two different instruments (from two different piano makers).
Only 5 competitors chose the Italian piano from the first stage. Among them, the Russian Maria Mazo, who passed to the final. However, after Maria Mazo's performance of the Mozart Concerto for piano and Orchestra KV 467, the situation completly changed, with 4 more finalists deciding to "leave" the piano chosen at the beginning and switching to FAZIOLI - a F278 selected at the factory in Sacile by Daniil Trifonov (winner of the last edition of the Rubinstein Competition).
