A. THE PRESELECTION

- The purpose of the videos is to select the candidates who are of a sufficiently high standard to take part in the public rounds of the Competition. (cf. art. 7). The preselection on the basis of videos takes place behind closed doors. The videos are viewed by a jury made up of internationally renowned personalities, in the presence of two members of the Arbitration Committee. In the video the candidate must perform the following programme in full:

 

 

1. Concertino da Camera – first movement

Jacques Ibert (version for saxophone and piano) – Publisher Alphonse Leduc.

2. Sonate op.19 – second movement

Paul Creston – Publisher Shawnee Press.

The candidate is accompanied on the piano only.

Technical requirements for the video:

- resolution: 640 x 480 pixels minimum;

- format: DV, DVIX, AVI, etc.;

- file name: FAMILY NAME_FIRST NAME_WORK PERFORMED;

- maximum size of the file: 700 Mb.

 

- The video must be accompanied by a document certifying its authenticity (as set out on the application form).

- The candidate must be fully visible at all times on the screen and the camera angle must be fixed.

- The candidate must be filmed in single takes (one take for each work performed). No editing will be accepted.

- The Competition Organising Team checks all the videos in advance and is present during the viewing in order to avoid, as far as possible, any technical problems. It may rule on the inadmissibility of a video on the grounds of inadequate technical quality or failure to respect the recording rules set out above, which make it impossible to view it.

- The Mediator will certify this inadmissibility.

- The Competition Organising Team reserves the right to require a candidate to provide a new copy of the video.
