The International Guitar Competition Krzyżowa 2015 in memory of Jarema Klich

From 24-25 July in Krzyżowa, Lower Silesia, there will take place a guitar competition addressed to youths under the age of 19. The originator of the competition is the popular guitarist from Wrocław, Krzysztof Pełech.

The competition takes place to mark the 15th anniversary of the Summer Guitar Course in Krzyżowa, but you do not need to be the course’s participant in order to partake in the competition. The only condition for participating in the competition is submitting a proper application form, paying a fee of 100 PLN and preparing a suitable repertoire. For the group of younger participants there are two etudes to choose between, from the cycle Etudes Simples from 11th to 20th century by Leo Brouwer, and for older guitarists there is a first part of a sonata of their own choice.

The competition will involve two age groups. The first will encompass participants, who by 31 December 2015 do not turn 16. The other group concerns classical guitaris
ts who in 2015 do not turn 19. The deadline for submitting application forms is 10 July for all participants.

The competition consists of a single stage, and the performance duration should not exceed 12 minutes in the younger group and 15 minutes for the older guitarists. The whole programme must be learned by heart.

Apart from participating in an extraordinary event, which is appraised by distinguished guitarists and teachers, the winners of the competition may expect attractive cash prizes (1100, 500 and 300 PLN), a Martinez guitar founded by Interton Classic, in-kind prizes as well as an invitation to one of the biggest guitar festivals in Poland – Wrocław Guitar Festival GITARA+. The guitarists chosen by the jury will also take place in a special concert during the Summer Guitar Course in Krzyżowa in 2016.

An additional advantage of the event is that both the auditions and the scheduled concerts will take place on the premises of a beautiful palace compound of the International House of Youths Meetings in Krzyżowa, which at that time will become a real “Mecca” for outstanding European guitarists. Noted virtuosos from Poland, Denmark, Spain, France and Italy will come to Krzyżowa, to share their knowledge with the participants of the Summer Guitar Course.
