2014 Bach Competition: Entries Now Open

Melbourne Recital Centre’s annual Bach Competition returns in 2014.

Melbourne Recital Centre’s 2014 Bach Competition, dedicated to young musicians passionate about JS Bach, is now open for entries.

Johann Sebastian Bach fashioned Baroque traditions into a towering peak of structural grace and formal perfection like no-one else. It is this supreme craftmanship, largely unrecognised at the time, which has earned Bach an enormous stature in later years among composers and musicians.

This competition is open to any instrument/s and soloists, duos or small ensembles (five or less) 17 years of age and under (at 1 January 2014).

Entrants compete for the Richard Mills Prize of $2000 plus additional encouragement prizes in an inspiring display of passion and skill.
