    P2 Chambermusic competition

    Hi all,

    Just to let you know of a real treat this week. It started today with the priliminary rounds of the National Danish Radio Program 2 Chambermusic Challenge/Competition for young highly skilled (classical) musicians.
    http://www.dr.dk/p2/kamkon

    I was in there today to hear the woodwind quintet Carion where an old friend of mine plays (the horn) - and it was a blast!!! - skillful mastery of their instruments... I think they'll have a good chance of getting to the final (haven't heard any of the other ensembles yet though).
    There's also an audience-competition - which everyone can enter by making a guess on which three ensembles will be nos. 1 through 3. - So there's something in it for everyone. ;-)

    I like these events too.Pity I am so far away.Not a lot like this,or on this scale are held in Australia.There is one Festival in Melbourne. Victoria for the Young and High Skilled and it is a week of wonderful music.The Esteidfords
    of Music in Most Capital Cities and Country areas are the closest thing to this,and also have audience participation.
    So I hope you will enjoy it all Thomas. I have found the Radio Station on my PC and perhaps they will play some.But my Danish is limited....Did Read about The Quintet "Carion" & hope they do make the Final. Cheers Pamadu/Paul.
    P.S. Attached is "Carion"

    they [Carion] made it to the final round... and they won second prize, which is not that bad... though I think winning would be somewhat more pleasant
    the winners are a quite young group of string players... - "The Young Danish Stringquartet"... I haven't heard them - besides a few short notes here and there... but as for the seemingly conservative jury of this competition, it wasn't a complete surprise... - we have to go back over 10 years to see something other than string trios or quartets who won the competition... so... but it's over now for this time, and I for one would like to congratulate the winners and participants of the competition... it really does take some skill and talent to go so far as these "guys" have... to them!!!
    on www.dr.dk/kammermusik there should be links to both pictures and audiofiles for anyone who wants to listen/look for themselves...
