Pieces other than the designated piece will not be accepted for review.
I can't get an orchestra to record the video. What can I do?
Instrumentation that uses at least two pianos will be accepted for review.
Should the conductor be facing a certain way during recording?
We would prefer that the conductor be recorded from the viewpoint of the performers. However, both conductor and performers must be shown on the same screen.
