Happy and fulfilled
Anna Zubko


Regina Gowarzewska talks to Maria Kerner (Hungary), a flutist, the 1st prize winner of the 10th Michał Spisak  International Music Competition.



How did you react to the announcement of the results?


I felt very happy and fulfilled. Actually, I was sure I had done well, I was satisfied with the subsequent rounds, but...the jury might evaluate my performance differently.



Do you think the “flute” programme at the Spisak Competition was difficult?


Oh, yes, at every round! One had to be very well prepared. Well, there were no obligatory pieces for the flutists, so we could choose the pieces on our own; however, the programme was designed in such a way that it was not so easy for us.



Which of the pieces that you played are your favourite?


In the competition programme I like the most the Sonata for flute and piano D major by Sergei Prokofiev and a showpiece Fantasie der Freischutz by Paul Taffanel.



Do you often take part in flute competitions?



Yes, as a matter of fact, I attend at least one or two each year. The previous year was not lucky to me. I lost in a few important competitions. This sometimes happens. However, I already have a lot of achievements. In the previous years I won prizes in Novi Sad in Serbia and in Brno in the Czech Republic.



Young participants in the Spisak  Competition often emphasise that the third round is difficult because they have never had an opportunity to play with the orchestra before.



Unfortunately, we have no opportunity to perform as soloists at concerts with an orchestra. So far I have played only twice. However, I can cooperate with a team, I understand the orchestra because I am a flutist in an orchestra. I am happy that I had an opportunity in Dąbrowa Górnicza to play twice as a soloist, also during the Concert of Laureates. I selected Concerto D major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to play in the third round, because it’s beautiful music and a great opportunity to show skills to the listeners.



Maria Kerner - graduate of the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, she improved her skills at numerous master courses. A laureate of Hungarian competitions, winner of the Anton Eberst International Flute Competition in Novi Sad (Serbia) in 2011, two years earlier at the same competition she was granted the 2nd prize, the 2nd prize winner of the Leos Janacek  International Competition in Brno (Czech Republic) in 2014. She cooperates with many orchestras, and since 2014 she has been a member of the Budapest Operetta orchestra.
