The repertoire of the International Musica Antiqua Competition 2017 for melody instruments was selected in order to challenge contestants to demonstrate their musical inventiveness, their technical thoroughness, and their mastery of style. Georg Philipp Telemann, who passed away 250 years ago, is awarded a central place in the competition program. President of the jury Johan Huys elaborates on the program in the regulations.
All participants prepare a program that contains the following elements:
- Two fantasias of the participant’s choice by G. Ph. Telemann (original, transposed, or adapted to the participant’s instrument)
- One work (original or not; either solo, with basso continuo, or with concertante harpsichord) by J.S. Bach
