The Competition is aimed at recorder players from around the world. It is meant to serve as a springboard for players who wish to develop a professional career and is an opportunity to prove themselves as soloists.

Competition Programme  
 
The competition consists of 3 stages: Pre-Selection, Semi-final, Final  
 
 
 
Pre-Selection  
 
Each candidate must submit a completed application form, accompanied by a recording on CD, DAT or mini disc (no cassettes). The recordings will be evaluated by the competition jury who will select the semi-finalists. The submitted recordings do not have to be studio-edited but should clearly demonstrate the artistic profile of the candidate.  
 
The Pre-Selection tape should include:  
 
• 1 work or excerpt of music from before 1800  
 
• 1 work or excerpt of music from between 1800 and 1850  
 
• 1 work or excerpt of music from the 20th or 21st Century – a candidate’s own composition or improvisation may take the place of a contemporary composer’s work.
 
Semi-final  
 
Those candidates who advance to the Semi-final will present a 30 minute long programme at a public concert on Thursday, September 15, 2005. The jury will decide who advances to the finals.

Final  
 
The final consists of a 30 minute public concert, the programme and artistic make up of which is entirely left up to the candidate. There will be particular attention paid to the creative aspects of the programme as well as the concept that gives the presented works an inner coherence.
