PATRON SOUTĚŽE - LUKÁŠ VONDRÁČEK

  • 07 February 2022

 

Patronem letošního ročníku soutěže AMADEUS je světově uznávaný klavírista Lukáš Vondráček

"Amadeus 1995 byl první soutěží, které jsem se zúčastnil a ve které jsem uspěl. Získal jsem tak motivaci a povzbuzení do další práce a odnesl si spoustu krásných zážitků. Velice rád na Brno a Amadea vzpomínám. Soutěžícím přeji hlavně radost z hudby a trpělivost na dlouhé muzikantské cestě. Věřím, že soutěž Amadeus je pro mladé talentované klavíristy ideálním odrazovým můstkem."

Amadeus do další dvacítky

  • 15 February 2013

Závěrečným koncertem laureátů skončil 9. února v brněnském Besedním domě jubilejní dvacátý ročník dětské klavírní soutěže Amadeus, která je pořádána na paměť vystoupení tehdy jedenáctiletého Mozarta v Brně. Tento fakt dal soutěži do vínku kuriozní horní věkovou hranici – právě jedenáct let. Starší již nemají šanci se soutěže zúčastnit.

Takový byl Amadeus 2012

  • 14 February 2012

Letos již po devatenácté se v moravské metropoli Brně setkaly nadané děti z řady zemí, aby předvedly svůj talent a dovednost v mezinárodní mozartovské soutěži pro mladé klavíristy do 11 let - AMADEUS 2012. Ve třech dnech 23. – 25. února, historický Besední dům doslova praskal ve švech. Hemžily se tu desítky soutěžících, jejich starostlivých rodičů a mírně nervózních pedagogů. Atmosféra byla neopakovatelná. Ti starší si plně uvědomovali závažnost chvíle–okamžik pravdy, který rázem zúročí všechny předcházející dlouhé hodiny přípravy, cvičení a výuky. Udělali jsme pro úspěch dost? Mohli jsme udělat více? Dospělým jsou tyto pochybnosti vlastní, avšak samotní mladí soutěžící si je zpravidla vůbec nepřipouštějí.

5 smajlíků pro Amadea

  • 25 February 2011

/zamyšlení nad trochu jinou soutěží/

Když jsem přijal pozvání do poroty letošního Amadea v Brně, nebylo to proto, že bych cítil nedostatek svého porotování v dětských soutěžích, ale zajímalo mě, jak  si tato soutěž sui generis,s neobvyklou věkovou hranicí 11 let a s velmi úzkým repertoirem „Mozart a jeho současníci“ vede v konkurenci s relativně velkou nabídkou soutěží pro mladé klavíristy. Amadeus má již 20-letou tradici a mnoho dnešních hvězd i hvězdiček na vysokých školách se může pyšnit laureátstvím této soutěže, jejíž neobvyklá horní věková hranice je odvozena od skutečnosti, že tehdy 11-letý Wolfi Mozart koncertoval se svou sestřičkou v brněnské Redutě. Musím říci, že jsme spolu s kolegy v mezinárodní porotě strávili v Brně velmi příjemné tři dny a tak jako děti v prvních třídách ve škole dostávají za něco mimořádně povedeného od paní učitelky do notýsku smajlíky, chtěl bych letošnímu Amadeovi udělit takových smajlíků hned pět za pět skutečností, které mě opravdu potěšily.
