Stony Brook Alum Julia Ageyeva (Hess) Awarded Second Prize in the XV “Paola Bernadi” International Harpsichord Competition

December 4, 2013

Harpsichordist and Stony Brook University graduate Julia Ageyeva (Hess), who studied with faculty member Arthur Haas, was the recently awarded second prize in the XV “Paola Bernadi” International Harpsichord Competition, which took place on November 2-5, 2013 in Bologna, Italy. Additionally, she was awarded the Mariolina De Robertis prize for the best performance of a contemporary piece, which includes a performance at the Procembalo Festival in Parma, Italy.

The competition included three 40-minute rounds of solo music, including a basso continuo round (a manuscript score was provided for a 15-minute pre-performance study without an instrument, and then rehearsed with a singer infront of a jury). The jury consisted of Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini (Italy), Ewald Demeyere (Belgium), Frédérick Haas (Belgium), Maria Pia Jacoboni Neri (Italy), and Silvia Rambaldi (Italy).
