Most applicants will be asked to supply pre-recordings of the repertoire below, with exceptions taken only for candidates with sufficient merits or where the jury knows the candidate well enough to deem this not necessary. If you are not certain whether a prerecording will be necessary or not, please send us an email with your CV to and we will let you know.

Applicants who need to, and who have not already supplied a recording by April 1 will be notified around April 7 and then given two weeks to do so.

The pre-recordings should be recorded in one take, without any cuts or edits and while remaining in frame for the duration of the video. We recommend the usage of an external microphone for sound quality purposes. The pre-recordings should be played on American trumpets.
