03 July 2003

The recipient of the 2003 Grant for Young Artists is
DE SONO ASSOCIAZIONE PER LA MUSICA

The De Sono Associazione per la Musica was founded in 1988 in Torino by a group of private citizens under the patronage of Italy's Piedmontese industries to financially support young musicians and composers by awarding scholarships, and to publish essays and doctoral dissertations on musical subjects.

In 15 years of activity the De Sono has been helping 117 young artists to perfect their skills with the best masters in the most prestigious Italian and foreign academies such as the Musikhochschule in Wien, Amsterdam Conservatory, Basel Musik-Akademie, Moscow Conservatory, Juilliard School in New York and London’s Guildhall School. By now many of these musicians have achieved success both as soloists and as main parts of important Italian and international orchestras.

The association will receive 5 million yen (c.$41,000) to assist their efforts to support young musicians, and especially to increase the annual grant to young musicians perfecting their skills abroad.

The Grant for Young Artists is an annual grant of 5 million yen given by the Japan Art Association to a group or institution that encourages the involvement of young people in the arts. The Grant for Young Artists was inaugurated to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Praemium Imperiale.
