  • The works should be written for french horn (both in F and Gb) and piano, with no electroacoustic media). In the general score, the french horn part should be written in A (real sound). The duration of the compositions should be between minimum 12 minutes and maximum 20 minutes. Works of any other duration will be disqualified.

 

  • Three copies of the general score will be submitted together with two set of materials (part music for the french horn, transported, and general score for the piano player, including the french horn part) appropriately prepared for the work to be preformed out of them with no reading problems. The scores and materials should be tape bound documents, clearly legible.
