Dear participants, teachers and accompanists!
I congratulate you on the end of the spring season of competitive auditions for the Twelfth World Open Online Music Competition! Despite the difficult times caused by the global pandemic, the organizing committee of the competition continues its successful activities, while creating new forms of work that allow participants from different countries to take part not only in various nominations, but now submit their video applications throughout the year. This is a very wise step in the development of the competition, because the existing restrictions sometimes do not allow participants to prepare for the competitive audition due to the lack of tools at home, since most educational institutions still remain online.
Despite all the difficulties, the competition opens up more and more new talents every year, and this is the great merit of the mentors of the contestants, accompanists, who raise their wards to the podium, thanks to joint, well-organized and well-coordinated work.
It should be noted that the level of performance of competitive programs increases every year. It was with particular interest to watch the performances of the participants of the junior and middle age categories. The degree of technical training in xylophone, snare drum, drum kit, vibraphone and marimba, the use of four-stick playing technique already at the age of 9, undoubtedly, all this indicates that percussion performance is moving forward with rapid strides.
Looking through the performances of participants from different countries, it should be noted that there have been some trends in the development of various performing schools. For example, traditionally, from year to year, most of the participants from Uzbekistan show excellent results on a drum kit, starting from a very young age, the European school of percussion instruments presents a high level of training on pitch keyboards and snare drum or percussion, and performers from Taiwan are focusing on solo marimba performance. Thus, in different parts of our world, their own vectors of performance on percussion instruments are formed and formed.
Summing up, I wish all participants not to dwell on their achievements, improve their game, set themselves new interesting creative tasks and move forward!
