LA FLAMA award

La Flama, from the Acadèmia de Quartet de Vic and the Federació de Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya, aims to rekindle the first drive given to new Catalan chamber ensembles.

With the support of Gerard Claret and the Federació de Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya, the teachers of the Acadèmia de Quartet, Abel Tomàs and Gerhard Quartet, will each choose the ensemble with the best outlook and growth potential from among those participating in the Quartet Academy.

The prize will consist of a first presentation concert at the Petit Palau of the Palau de la Música Catalana and inclusion in the Xarxa de Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya [Musical Youth Network of Catalonia] 2025-2026, which will allow the winning groups to perform all over the country.
