DEAR RECORDER FANS
We would like to invite you to
THE 4TH YEAR OF THE COMPETITION EXHIBITION FLAUTOVÁNÍ
It´s the fourth year of preparing Flautování competition exhibition in recorder playing, and we are really glad to do it for you.
There are several news and changes compared to the previous years. It is the first year we decided to focus on the contemporary repertoire composed specially for the recorder. Modern literature is an important part of the literature for this instrument. It uses new techniques of playing which furthers the technical limits of the instrument and reveals new possibilities of interpretation. We do not want to leave this out, though, that is why we have decided to focus on contemporary literature this year. We established cooperation with a young talented composer and recorder player, Anna Mikolajková. Some of her compositions were placed into the compulsory repertoire. Anna Mikolajková will, within Flautování, also be leading a workshop focused on contemporary compositions, modern techniques, and the introduction of her own work.
Another novelty is the inclusion of a new category in the competition of chamber ensembles. Compared to the last year, where it was possible to introduce only ensembles consisting of recorders, we will welcome ensembles of any instrument composition this year. However, the condition is that the recorders will be in instrumental superiority.
The performances will be evaluated by our faithful jury, excellent teachers and leading recorder players — Jakub Kydlíček, Renata Smetková, and Petra Václavíková.
You can look forward to concerts and accompanying program — selling exhibition of musical instruments, sheet music, and musical objects. As every year, of course, we are also preparing workshops that will be a little different than in previous years. We believe that you will be pleasantly surprised.
We hope together we will enjoy Flautování, with a nice, creative, and friendly atmosphere!
