The project is promoted by the Music School of Fiesole and involves the Mozarteum University of Salzburg (Austria), the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Lyon (France), the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar (Germany), the Royal Conservatoire The Hague (Netherlands) and the Vigo Conservatory of Music (Spain).”
