Aeolus Bläserwettbewerb 2017
Sunday, 17.09.2017
Tonhalle Düsseldorf
    Finale: Flöte, Klarinette, Saxophon, Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, Ltg.: Martin Fratz, Werke von Ibert, Weber und Glazunov

    A glance at this year’s competition landscape at the prestigious World Federation of International Music Competitions – of which Aeolus has been a member for six years – reveals that the international Aeolus music competition provides a niche for wind instruments. 119 competitions are planned, of which only one is for the clarinet, one for saxophone, and three for flute.

    So it comes as no surprise that the Aeolus competition taking place from 12 to 17 September has a record number of entries: 103 flautists, 86 clarinettists and 37 saxophonists from 44 countries want to take part in the demanding heats, submitting to the judgement of an imposing jury composed of eight respected and first-class soloists and professors. The Canadian, Charles Olivieri-Munroe (photo) – Principal Conductor of the Südwestfalen Philharmonic, Principal Conductor of the North Czech Philharmonic and Artistic Director of the Krakow Philharmonic Orchestra – holds the chair of the jury whose members change every year. Dr. Sieghardt Rometsch, who initiated the competition, is particularly pleased to have persuaded Claude Delangle, the supreme authority for all saxophone teachers and students, to act as a juror. His team has been trying since 2006 to persuade the Frenchman to come to Düsseldorf.

    The competition is being staged in three heats for each instrument from 12 to 15 September. The concerts are open to the public without admission fee – in other words, high-calibre music for free. For the fourth heat on 17 September at the Tonhalle, the three best performers will be required to prove their skills as soloists at a concert with the Düsseldorf Symphonic Orchestra. Prizes worth a total of 30,000 euros will be awarded.

    For the prize-winners, what is almost more important than the money is the reputation that they will establish for themselves through the competition. Many of them have meanwhile become soloists with prestigious orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic, the English National Opera Orchestra or the Russian National Orchestra.
