BBT Communities is a new division of BBT that was launched in October 2018 to reward organisations that enhance the life of a community through music.
Since its first awards in 2003, BBT has provided support to 103 individuals and ensembles from over 30 countries. We are proud to introduce the Borletti-Buitoni Trust winners 2018.
Announced on 19 February 2017, the inaugural Franco Buitoni Award was made as the personal choice of Mitsuko Uchida, trustee of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust (BBT).
This special tribute is in memory of Franco Buitoni (1934-2016) who co-founded the Borletti-Buitoni Trust in 2002 with his wife, Ilaria.
