hülsta woodwinds. International Woodwind Competition
28th October to 1st November 2011, Münster, Germany

Organized by hülsta and GWK (Society for the Fostering of Cultural Activities in Westfalia), the international woodwind competition hülsta woodwinds aims at supporting highly gifted young woodwind players. In this competition, we look for more than technical perfection, which to us is a matter of course. In a globalized hightechworld, which destroys individuality to the same extent as it pretends it to be venal in products of mass consumption, we again focus on the artistic personality. We are looking forward to laureates who convince by both virtuosity and genuineness, by an extraordinarily deep musical understanding as well as by the authenticity of their performance. We are looking for characters who will spellbind the connoisseur and even the expert, who will bewitch the amateur and enthrall the enthusiast, and who will also captivate the layman, making him and her a true longterm listener to music.

We very much thank the Music Conservatoire Münster, a reliable partner of the GWK for many years, for collaborating with us in the second international hülsta woodwinds competition.
