"Ivry Gitlis is not only one of the greatest violinists of all time, but is a poet, thinker, philosopher and actor who transcends the mere expressive means of the violin," Exhibition President, Antonio Piva has told The Violin Channel.
"His violinist stature is comparable to a very few other violinists in history ... his interpretative approach, like that of the great artists, is unmistakable and inimitable," he has said.
This year's Mondomusica honours were also awarded to cellist and composer Giovanni Sollima, journalist Stuart Isacoff - and the Santa Cecilia Music Academy.
Previous recipients include Shlomo Mintz, Alfred Brendel, Michael Nyman, Krzysztof Penderecki and the FuturOrchestra.
