There are three phases of participation:
The instrumentalists will participate in private coaching sessions with major teachers on their respective instruments. Repertoire will include concertos and solo pieces from the instrument's literature.
All active participants will perform as soloist in 2 concerts with the Vratza State Symphony. Those concerts will be recorded on a video-cassette and each participant will receive a free copy of his/her performance.
The chosen instrumentalists will receive the opportunity to make a master recording of their performance, accompanied by the Vratza State Symphony. Those performances will be released on a Compact Disc, under the label “Young Talents”. Each participant will receive 50 free copies of the CD.
(The recording and digital re-mastering will be performed by some of the best sound engineers at the Bulgarian Radio. These engineers have made hundreds of professional recordings and have worked with famous music houses such as EMI, Teldec, and Sony Classical.)
