Please note: a video submission is required as part of your application. The video will be used to organise players into quartets with those of a compatible ability. A video recorded on a smartphone or tablet will be perfectly suitable. It is your playing that we are interested in rather than the quality of the recording. The video should be 3 minutes in duration and of one piece of your choice.
