  • Video

    Videos sind Voraussetzung (Details unten) und ersetzen das Live-Probespiel.

    Audition Videos

    All applicants to Concertgebouworkest Young are required to record a series of videos that include the content outlined below. Each performance segment must be recorded in one take with no editing (though it is permitted to select the best out of several takes). All videos must be recorded within eight months of the application deadline. Professional equipment and/or studio space is not necessary for a successful application to Concertgebouworkest Young. With proper attention to a few details, the applicant's music playing can be successfully conveyed using readily available consumer electronics, like iPhones or other smartphones. Please refer to our Video Guidelines (https://www.concertgebouworkest.nl/en/young/join) for additional information and suggestions for effectively recording the audition.

     

    Required Video Segments

    1. Introduction: Before performing your solo selection, please include a spoken introduction in which you state your name, instrument, hometown, and title of the solo work you have chosen.

    2. Solo Piece: The solo piece is preferably the exposition of a classical solo concerto, but can be any work of your choice, or a movement/section of a longer work, provided that it is approximately three minutes in duration. If the piece is longer than three minutes, you may record an excerpt or submit an unedited three-minute section from a longer recording. You may also use a recent solo recording if it meets the Concertgebouworkest Young audition requirements, but please record and upload the spoken introduction separately. A work with piano accompaniment (except if you are applying on percussion) is strongly preferred.

    3. Excerpts: Each instrument has to play all required orchestral excerpts.

    If you wish to audition for bass trombone, please upload a video of the bass trombone excerpts.

    4. Scales: Please play one major and one minor (harmonic or melodic) scale in any key of your choice with up to four sharps/flats from memory at a comfortable tempo. Each scale should be played twice, once slurred and once separated, using an articulation or bowing of your choice. Violin, viola, and cello applicants should play two or three octaves; bass, wind, and brass applicants should play one or two octaves.

    5. Video Essay: Please record an answer to the following questions:

    • Young aims to select young talents who could use some extra support in their musical career. In what way does this (or does it not) apply to your situation?
    • Young aims to represent the diversity within European countries. In what way could you help us reach this goal?
    • Young invites the Young-alumni to become ambassadors for the programme and for classical music in their communities or home countries. What would make you a good ambassador?

    Please notice: this video essay should preferably be spoken in English. If that is too difficult, please record it in your own language.
