2nd AEMC

international chamber music competition


A new competition

The horizon of classical music competitions is evergrowing. But also changing. The AEMC competition is different. First, its only category is Chamber Music: ensembles of max 8 players of any instrument (two pianos 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, agencies, discographic labels, performance. Prizes include concerts, for what counts most is being given the opportunity of performing and networking. Third, it simply consists of one Round via video (min 15-minute, max 30-minute) on YouTube. 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.
