Magdalena Irmińska (flute teacher) and Aruto Matsumoto (piano teacher) began their cooperation just for the occasion of the competition which took place from 14th November 2018 till 1st December 2018.
There were 18 finalists from 10 countries. The TBS ensemble was one of the two ensembles from Poland. The competition took place on the Internet – the contestants were supposed to upload an unedited music video of Eugene Magalif’s Flute Concerto (transcripted for flute and piano). The jury, consisting of 11 musicians from USA, Russia, Finland, Poland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine, judged the contestants and awarded best performances of the Flute Concerto.
