About the competition
The International Tartini Competition was established with the aim of bringing greater recognition to the violin virtuoso and composer Giuseppe Tartini and his native town of Piran. In his honour, Tartini's compositions are part of the violinists' compulsory repertoire.
The compositions of Bojan Glavina, a local composer and pianist, are a compulsory part of the piano discipline. In fact, a large part of his compositional output is dedicated to this instrument. Bojan Glavina will personally listen to all participating pianists and personally award the best performances of his works at the competition.
The organisation of the competition is greatly supported by the Municipality of Piran and the Autonomous Community of Italian Nationality in Piran, who are making their premises, which are among the most beautiful halls on the Slovenian coast, available for the competition.
The International Tartini Competition also has a charitable mission. On this occasion, funds are raised for young talented musicians to buy new instruments or to cover fees for master classes and summer schools. The Rotary Club of Portorož is a committed partner responsible for the charitable aspect of the competition and financial support.

for young violinists and pianists is organized
