The final of this year's competition takes place at the London International Festival of Early Music on 10th November. Festival tickets are on sale now and available online here.
About the competition:
The aim is to encourage young players of talent, and to help them in their professional aspirations. Competitors must show that they are able to sustain a full recital programme at a professional level.
The first prize consists of a recital at LIFEM in the year following the competition, together with cash prizes, donated by Moeck and the Society of Recorder Players.
Tickets for LIFEM 2023 are on sale now from www.lifem.org

This soprano recorder in boxwood by Takeyama is at a415 Baroque pitch, and for a lightweight instrument it produces a surprisingly strong sound.
