|CARILLON CONTEST GOES|
GOES - On the occasion of the completion of the restoration of the carillon of the Grote Kerk in Goes, the Stichting Goese Beiaard organizes on Saturday June 27th, 2015, a carillon contest. During the restoration a new e-flat1 bell, the 'Sjoerd Tamminga-bell' was added. The instrument has now 48 bells.
The instrument is located in the open spire of the Maria Magdalena church en is tuned in equal temperament. The bells in the range f1 - g1 - chrom. - f5 are attached to the keyboard as c1 - d1 - chrom. - c5. So the carillon transposes a quarter up and has a standard European keybaord (with a slightly diminished key fall). For every candidate 45 minutes of practice time is available.
Category A and B: A program of up to 15 minutes with at least one original composition written for carillon. There is no compulsary work.
Candidates are asked to make three copies of all pieces that will be played. None of the music sheets may contain notes that could enable the jury to identify the participant.
