Občina Brda

“Tekmovanja so za konje, ne za umetnike”, je dejal Béla Bartók. Z očmi glasbenega genija se morda res zdi tako. In vendar so se v zgodovini skozi različna glasbena tekmovanja v svet vrhunske umetnosti prebili številni glasbeni velikani, kot so Marta Argerich, Vladimir Aškenazi, Van Cliburn, Gidon Kremer, Boris Pergamenščikov, ali pa pričujoči člani naše žirije. Tekmovanja prav gotovo niso življenjsko usodna, lahko pa mladega nadobudnega umetnika motivirajo pri delu in iskanju lastnega izraza, mu pomagajo najti mesto pod soncem, ga usmerjajo (naj bo izkušnja sladka ali grenka), zunanjemu svetu pa odkrijejo še nebrušene diamante. Eno od mest, ki je na zemljevidu glasbenih tekmovanj vedno bolj prepoznavno, je tudi Nova Gorica. Od skromnih začetkov lokalnega značaja leta 2003 je bienalno Mednarodno tekmovanje saksofonistov v Sloveniji do danes zraslo v zavidanja vredno srečanje, kjer se za lepe nagrade sponzorjev, partnerjev in podpornikov “spopadajo” mladi glasbeniki iz devetnajstih držav z vseh kontinentov (razen Afrike), najboljši pa igrajo v finalu kot solisti z reprezentativnim simfoničnim orkestrom. In vsi so poleg repertoarnih pripravili tudi skladbe izbranih slovenskih skladateljev, za katere marsikdo med njimi prej verjetno niti slišal ni, ter tako širijo védenje o majhni Sloveniji, njeni kulturi in ustvarjalnosti izven meja naše države. Pri tem se med njimi in nami mladimi saksofonisti, pianisti, mentorji, žiranti, organizatorji, sponzorji in spremljevalci - tkejo posebne vezi (tako značilne za saksofoniste in simpatizerje), ki s svojo nevidno, vendar silno močjo pripomorejo k še večji prepoznavnosti našega mladega inštrumenta. Marsikatero razočaranje, pa tudi veliko dobrega in lepega se zgodi na takšnem glasbenem tekmovanju, čeprav nismo konji. Morda pa se je veliki Bartók zmotil ... Zatorej - dobrodošli in veliko uspeha!

“Competitions are for horses, not artists” said Béla Bartók. This might be true from the perspective of a musical genius, but history teaches that a number of musical giants, such as Marta Argerich, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Van Cliburn, Gidon Kremer, Boris Pergamenschikow — or the members of our panel — have emerged from musical competitions. Although not being lifechanging moments, competitions can still motivate aspiring young artists to carry on developing their own style, help them come to the fore and direct them taking the bitter with the sweet, while showing the world precious stones that still need some polishing. Nova Gorica is certainly one of the places consolidating its position on the world-map of musical competitions. The biennial International Saxophone Competition in Slovenia has grown from a modest local event in 2003 into an enviable meeting where young musicians from nineteen countries from every continent (except Africa)‘fight’ for the coveted prizes offered by sponsors, partners and supporters, with the best musicians performing in the finals as soloists, accompanied by a renowned symphony orchestra. In addition to pieces from their own repertoires, the artists are requested to perform compositions by selected Slovenian composers, most certainly unknown to most of the young musicians, and thus contributed to the promotion of our small country, its culture and its creativity beyond our national borders. The event creates a network of relations between young saxophone and piano players, tutors, panellists, organisers, sponsors and accompanists, as well as fans, generating an invisible energy hub, which is ensuring an increasing prominence to our young instrument. There are disappointments, of course, but there are even more beautiful and memorable things happening in this type of musical competition, in spite of us not being horses. Or maybe the great Bartók was wrong ... Welcome then, enjoy your time here and I wish you lots of success! Matjaž Drevenšek,

umetniški vodja Mednarodnega tekmovanja saksofonistov v Sloveniji Artistic Director of the International Saxophone Competition in Slovenia
