144 participants, 8 days of rivalry in a friendly atmosphere, 66 hours of auditions, countless hours of preperation and one respectful international jury. All this effort to choose a young instrument masters of 11th Michał Spisak International Music Competition. This could be only accomplished by the three participants who are now opening the door to national and international career.
After a tremendous physical, psychological and musical pains, we have met the best of 143 participants of 11th Michał Spisak International Music Competition. Statue of Michał Spisak as a price for the 1st place goes to: Roksana Kwaśnikowska in violin category, Agnieszka Podłucka in viola category and two winners in oboe specialty – Gabriel Pidoux and João Miguel Moreira da Silva. They all proved to be steadfast, best-prepared, feeling the pieces. They passed through the all 3 stages of auditions playing before their authorities and giving their first concert with the symphony orchestra in the beautiful Theater Hall of Zagłębie Palace of Culture. This is just a beginning. Tomorrow in the same hall we will see all of awarded musicians and hear 1st place winners of each category in the Concert of Laureates accompanied by the Zabrze Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sławomir Chrzanowski.
Congratulations for all finalists! We thank the audience for the presence (We invite to today for the concerts of the future edition of the competition). For other competition’s participants we remind the words of Boon Hua Lien (Assistant Conductor of The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice): No matter the result, have fun, make music and make a lot of friends – this is the most interesting and fullfeeling part in the musician’s life.
