For the first time, 2013 ABC Symphony Australia Young Performers Awards (Melbourne, 4 – 12 October) now take the form of a ‘mini-festival’. In performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Awards will present seven public concerts in 10 days and three competition rounds, including recital, chamber music and concerto performances. Music by Australian composers featured during the recital round include works by Carl Vine, Margaret Sutherland, John Exton, Ross Edwards, Joe Chindamo, Wilfred Lehmann, Elena Kats-Chernin, Brian Buggy, Peter Sculthorpe and Miriam Hyde.
The 2013 ABC Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year wins a cash prize of $25,000, the ABC Sir Charles Moses Young Performer’s Trophy, a professional CD recording and a paid performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
The Finals format includes the recitals round, in which all 12 finalists will compete across four concerts in the Iwaki auditorium at the ABC Southbank Centre on 4 and 5 October. Six finalists will be selected to proceed to the next stage of the finals – the chamber music round, where they will collaborate with musicians from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to perform a chamber music work, across two concerts on 9 October in the Iwaki Auditorium. The final three performers selected will perform their nominated Concerto in the final round with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Christopher Seaman, in the Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday 12 October.
All concerts in each stage of the finals are open to the public, broadcast live on ABC Classic FM and some concerts will be filmed by ABC TV for future broadcast.
