The Pentaèdre wind quintet is pleased to present its 4th edition of the Pentaèdre- Youkali Competition, celebrating the great tradition of musical performance for winds. Launched in 2012, the Competition aims to offer support to wind players—flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn players— and showcase their repertoire. Past winners include bassoonist Antoine St-Onge (Principal Bassoon with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra), as well as oboist Élise Poulin and flutist Ariane Brisson, who today are both members of Pentaèdre.

This year, the Competition will spotlight German composer Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), whose extensive body of work is essential material for any wind player. Presented in partnership with the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal and the Youkali Foundation, the Competition will be held on November 26, 2022. Dedicated to young wind players aged 25 and under, the Competition is divided into two categories: Solo, and Chamber Music. Several prizes in the form of bursaries and professional opportunities will be awarded.
