Audio material

For your application we require recordings that will enable the teachers to select the course participants. Please take the following into account:

  • Please only send pieces from the Renaissance and/or early Baroque period (no Händel, Bach, Vivaldi, etc.). These do not need to have any connection to the Hanseatic cities and do not have to be identical to those that you will prepare for the masterclass.
  • The audio samples do not have to be professionally produced, the only important thing is that the teachers get the best possible impression of your current level of musical performance.
  • You can also send in solo repertoire without continuo accompaniment if there is no other possibility.
  • please do not exceed a duration of 15 minutes
  • each file not larger than 199 MB
  • accepted file types: .mp3 and .mp4 or YouTube and Vimeo links
  • label the files as followed:
    Surname, first name_composer–short piece title
    e.g. Schmidt, Anna_Vierdanck–Lobe den Herren
  • send using file transfer platforms such as wetransfer.com, www.wesendit.com, Dropbox or similar to our office (sarah.hodgson@hansemuseum.eu).
  • The received audio and video files will be used exclusively for the selection of the participants and will be deleted afterwards.
