Section 1.08 – Boroondara Eisteddfod Piano Concerto Award
Adjudication input from the orchestra’s Artistic Director & Principal Conductor, Mark Shiell for the final.
Choice of work for heats: Entrants shall nominate a single selection (a movement or movements from a concerto) that they will perform in their heat with a piano accompanist that they will provide. When selecting the work to be played in the heat, it is recommended that they consult the list of works approved by the orchestra to be played in the final.
Choice of work for final: The finalists will be required to play a movement or movements from a concerto taken from a short list of suitable works that the orchestra has available in its library and is in a position to perform. The finalists will play with full orchestral accompaniment.
Entrants should visit www.zelmansymphony.org.au/Info/BoroondaraEisteddfod for the list of suitable works.
Work to be played in final:
There will be three finalists only.
Shortly after the last heat, the three finalists will be contacted by the Zelman Symphony and asked to nominate at least two selections chosen from the list of suitable works provided by the orchestra (see web link above). These selections shall be a movement or movements from a concerto timed for a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 25 minutes per selection.
One of these nominated selections will be chosen by the conductor for each finalist, who will be advised of the selection they will play in the final within a week after the heat. In choosing the selection to be played by each finalist, the conductor will consider both the preferences of the finalists and the need to present a wide variety of works to the audience.
Finalists will be required to attend one but preferably both rehearsals on the evenings of Tuesday 13 June and Tuesday 20 June at the Leo Baeck Centre in Kew East, and times will be arranged to suit finalists to the greatest extent possible. In addition, finalists will be required to attend both rehearsals on Thursday evening 22 June and Sunday morning 25 June at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
