Category 2: The Treasury of Baroque Composers - No Age Limit

There are five levels in this category
.
Contestants may choose to enter one or more levels, but only once in each level.
For this category, the stated music editions will be used as the "official music" for all judges throughout the competitions. If a contestant is using a different edition, he/she must check carefully to make sure the music is not critically different from the official edition.

For this category, music must be performed from memory
. NO REPEATS are allowed, unless instructed clearly.

For all Baroque music: The judges will be instructed to accept all “commonly known” baroque performance practices which include ornaments, phrasings, dynamics, and articulations, not marked as such, but used by Bach, Scarlatti, Handel, and other Baroque composers and artists as appropriate styles for the period.
