The international clarinet competition Czech Clarinet Art is the first and only clarinet competition on an international level in the Czech Republic focused solely playing the clarinet. The first year which was held in April 2013 ranked among the major musical competitions in Europe thanks to the prizes, very high level of the participants and the repute and credibility of the international jury.
Czech clarinet players rank among the world and the competition has strong foundation as it relates to the tradition of the Czech clarinet playing and simultaneously support it. The international competition will also draw attention to the Czech Republic and increase the quality of local musicians. This will hopefully influence next generations of young interpreters (not only from Czech Republic) who are the focus group of the competition.
Czech Clarinet Art is intended for players of the following categories: under 12 years old, under 15 years old, under 20 years and under 30 years old. All of the competition rounds will be public. The competition will finish with award ceremony including the closing concert of the winners.
