SUMMER 2020 COMPETITION - RESULTS


Recommended Posts

IN A DIFFERENT WORLD

YC Composer Competition - Summer, 2020

Thank you to all of the entrants for submitting their works. Everyone should be proud for finishing their pieces at such a high general standard of quality. And thank you also to my fellow judges for their work in this process as well. The competitions are one of the most engaging features on this forum, and help 'keep the blood flowing', so to speak, so I'm very pleased that this competition turned out to be so popular.  And now, without further ado, I present the final scores from our competition.

MEMBER VOTING:

FIRST PLACE - Bassoon Concerto No. 2 by @Leonardo C. Núñez (22 points total)

SECOND PLACE - Flight of the Fledgling by @Left Unexplained (13 points total)

THIRD PLACE (TIED)* - A Dream's End by @Thatguy v2.0 (11 points total)

THIRD PLACE (TIED)* - Kitichi by @Rodrigo Ruiz (11 points total)

*I am listing A Dream's End higher because it had a higher number of second-place votes, rather than third-place votes. Each had the same number of first-place votes.

TRADITIONAL JUDGING:

FIRST PLACE - Bassoon Concerto No. 2 by @Leonardo C. Núñez (140.5 points out of 150 possible)

SECOND PLACE - Hope by @Maggie L (128 points out of 150 possible)

THIRD PLACE (TIED) - Symphonie No. 1, III. Adagio by @Gernt (122 points out of 150 possible)

THIRD PLACE (TIED) - String Quartet in D Minor, Mvt. 4 by @Joshua Ng (122 points out of 150 possible)

 

Congratulations to @Leonardo C. Núñez for winning both aspects of the competition!

My thanks to @Noah Brode for taking the brunt of the workload off of my shoulders and successfully bringing another competition to its close. All entrants should be proud of their work and similarly pleased that your contribution is a part of all of our histories alike. An extra congratulations to those who consistently scored highly; having a panel of judges is certainly more consistent and enticing than one, and I hope we as judges along with @Tónskáld have done our part to ensure that your music was thoughtfully considered. Until next time, all.

Awesome job everyone! My hope in these things are that the added weight of competition could bring out the best in all of us, especially with the isolation. I encourage all who participated to post your pieces as normal, I'd love to talk shop with some of you regarding your compositions. Well done Leonardo!

I second this! Please, everyone, feel free to post your pieces now. Also, remember that you can feel free to message me if you would like to know the specific member voting numbers for your own work.

Thank you everyone who has hosted and participated in this competition! And for a first time in a competition on this forum, it's really encouraging to win something! Also I send my regards to @Leonardo C. Núñez, his bassoon concerto was really good! 🙂 

edit: Also I apologise for any slurring or playability mistakes, I completed this just barely before the deadline and the check-through was quite rushed, it's clear I missed out some very big playability errors. I will work to refine some transitions as well.

I'd like to echo @Monarcheon in her public appreciation of @Noah Brode; the amount of work he did behind the scenes was stunning. Thanks to all of the entrants for the opportunity to listen to your creative outflow and be involved in this process! It was truly inspiring—and humbling. I'd also like to recognize my fellow judges in their dedication during this competition. The entries couldn't have been in better hands.

I look forward to more of these in the near future!
