The triennial Baroque Flute Artist Competition is for outstanding performers on baroque flute. Six entrants will be chosen to compete in this virtual competition. All entrants must be 35 years of age or younger by the last day of the convention (born on or after August 15, 1986). Entrants may be required to show proof of age.
Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, all Recorded Round repertoire must be recorded without accompaniment.
Semifinalists will be asked to submit a video, due June 1. The Boismortier and Bach will be performed unaccompanied and the Locatelli will be performed with a virtual accompaniment that will be provided.
Each finalist shall create a virtual program demonstrating artistic maturity, technical and tonal qualities, and knowledge of program design and balance excluding any repetitions of recorded round or semifinal round repertoire. Each program should be a maximum of 25 minutes (including time between movements, pieces, applause, etc.). Final round repertoire, including titles, movements, exact timings, composer's dates, and publishers must accompany the application. Finalists will be bound by their original selections.
Finalists will be asked to submit a video of their program, due July 15. Virtual accompaniment will be provided for one piece of your choice, and the remaining works are to be played unaccompanied. One piece is to be in a flat key.
