A new competition

The horizon of classical music competitions is evergrowing. But also changing. The AEMC competition is establishing itself as different. First, its only category is Chamber Music, aimed at ensembles of max 8 players of any instrument (singers and accompanists included). The premise is that music is something to be shared and playing together must be encouraged. Second, its Jury comprises members coming from the world of academia, performance, discographic labels, and festivals. Prizes include opportunities for performances, for what counts most is being given the opportunity of growing and networking. Third, it simply consists of one round via video (min 15-minute, max 30-minute) on YouTube. The video must be filmed and uploaded after 9 March 2020 and must not be connected to the contestants' participation in another competition; it can be the live performance at a concert instead. The repertoire is totally free and allows the candidates to express their personalities at best. Our philosophy is that music is not just technique. It is something more, which is what we are looking for.
