RULES FOR THE FLUTE DIVISION
Competitors, teachers and parents are advised to read the general Rules and Conditions very carefully.
In addition, competitors entering the Flute Division should note that:

  1. They may play any number of pieces or movements unless otherwise specified, provided the specified time limit is not exceeded.  The interval between pieces and movements will not be timed.
  2. They may not play any set piece as an own choice.
  3. In Grade Sections, works from the current Syllabi (any recognised music examinations, such as AMEB, ABRSM, Trinity College London, St Cecilia or Australian Guild of Music and Speech) for the grade level being entered must be played. Competitors who have entered a Grade Section where they are obviously more advanced than the level entered can be disqualified by the Adjudicator if he/she feels that there is a discrepancy or after receipt of a protest.
  4. Competitors may only enter two under age sections in any given year.
  5. Previous First Prize Winners are ineligible to enter a section in which they gained their prize (for flute sections, rule 13 does not apply); except that previous First Prize winners may enter sections F614, F615, F616, F619 and F624 again.
  6. In sections where age limits apply, the age of the competitor as at 30th June, 2017, except for F939 where the date is November 1, 2017.
  7. A legible piano score copy of the own choice music to be performed must be provided for the Adjudicator.  Original music should be collected at the end of each section.  The music for set pieces and Flute Music by French Composers will be provided for the adjudicator.
  8. In Sections F611, F612, F621, F622 and F626 competitors are asked to provide the title and duration of the works to be performed at time of entry.  These are the works that must be performed by the competitor unless the competitor has applied in writing to the Convenor no later than four weeks before the scheduled date for permission to change the works.  The works being performed will be checked during booking in.  Competitors who have not received permission to change their works will be allowed to perform but will be disqualified from receiving any awards.
  9. Competitors in the Flute Division should take note of General Rules 15 and 21; these refer to booking in requirements and the order of competing.
  10. Please refer to General Rule No 11 about playing a set piece as an ‘Own Choice’ piece and General Rule No 17 about ‘prompting, coaching, conducting or directing’ of a competitor by a member of the audience.
  11. For a complete performance, if a piece of music has an accompaniment it should be performed with the accompaniment.   It is difficult for an adjudicator to consider a performance for an award if it is performed without the accompaniment because part of the skill of performing is collaborating with the accompanist.


BOOKING IN: Could each competitor please have his/her name and the names of works and their composers clearly written on a sheet of paper ready to hand in to the booking-in person.   This doesn't apply to sections F611, F612, F621, F622 and F626 because these details will have been provided at time of entry.


Note re Sections F611, F612, F622, F626 and the Eisteddfod Concerto.  These are considered to be equally prestigious.  Competitors who are preparing an entire sonata or suite should consider entering the Complete Flute Sonata or Suite Section, and competitors who are preparing an entire concerto should think about entering the Flute Concerto or the Adelaide Eisteddfod Concerto.


The David Cubbin Flute Medallion will be presented to the most promising flautist in the Open Flute Section.  Prof. David Cubbin founded the Flute Society of SA in 1972 and was its first President.  He was Principal Flute in the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra from 1955 to 1964, Lecturer in Flute at the Elder Conservatorium from 1956 to 1973 and a foundation member of the University of Adelaide Wind Quintet.  He was Professor of Music at the Tasmanian Conservatorium from 1985 to 1990 and President of the Australian Flute Association from 1988 to 1995.  He died in May 1997.

The Ray Rosser Memorial Award will be presented to the most promising flautist from the 10 Years and Under and 12 Years and Under Sections.  Ray Rosser was a keen amateur flautist who competed in the first ever Darwin Eisteddfod in 1961.  As a young boy he played in the Lakemba Primary School Fife and Drum Band (Sydney) under Victor McMahon.  Ray studied flute with David Cubbin and Alison Rosser.  He worked with deaf children, was a member of the Flute Society of SA and helped with the Second Australian Flute Convention in 1976.   He died in 1990.

Competitors entering this Division should also look at the Eisteddfod Concerto and the Eisteddfod Ensemble Event.
