From Innovatrombone we are pleased to communicate the results of the 1st Online Interpretation Contest of the trombone.
As most of you will know, a few months ago and as a result of the pandemic, from innovatrombone we decided to create an interpretation contest in which trombonists from all over the world could participate and it has been like that.
We have been very lucky to receive young trombonists from practically all over the world, from Japan, for example, through China, Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain, the United States and all of Latin America.
The competition was divided into two phases, in which the contestants sent us videos playing the compulsory works according to the competition rules. In the first phase we received hundreds of videos and approximately 5 were selected from each category, which went on to the final phase which is the one we are dealing with today.
We have had the collaboration of the composers Vicente Martínez Casas, Julio Domingo, Ricardo Mollá, José Rafael Pascual Vilaplana, Julio Landaeta, Enrique Hernandis and Christian Daniel Vallejo, who have provided some of their works in the different categories.
We have had the help of sponsors and collaborators such as Antoine Courtois Paris, from the group Buffet Crampon Paris, bags (cases and covers for musical instruments), K&G Kurum and Gilbert mouthpieces, B&S products, Stomvi, Up sound, Shagerl, Spanish brass editions, BlackBinder, editorial tot per l’aire, innovatrombone academy and orchestral play along.
We have had the invaluable help of an international jury of trombonists and composers of high prestige who have evaluated each and every one of our contestants
