How should I record my videos for the preselection round ?

If you want to apply as a candidate to the 2022 Cello Competition, you must upload several videos for the preselection round. Being well prepared makes your job of recording and ours of checking the video material so much easier, so be sure to take into account the following technical demands :

  • Each piece or movement, in the case of works that contain several movements, must be recorded in a single take.
  • One file per piece or per movement will have to be uploaded.
  • There must be only one camera and its angle has to be fixed.
  • No editing will be allowed.
  • The candidate must be clearly visible; the candidate’s hands and face should be clearly visible at all times.
  • It is strongly recommended that the sound should be recorded professionally.
  • The videos may be recorded in different places and on different occasions.
  • Youtube links are not accepted.

You can find more detailed information in Articles 23-28 of the rules of the cello session.

In order to avoid application problems, we insist that you start uploading these videos well on time before the application deadline of Wednesday 8 December 2021 at 12:00 (noon) GMT.

Good luck with your preparations and do not hesitate to ask more questions to our team via e-mail.
