NTNU Student Won Second Place at Buffet Crampon Clarinet Competition
Buffet Crampon is a French manufacturer of woodwind musical instruments, including oboes, flutes, saxophones, English horns and bassoons; however, the company is perhaps most famous for their clarinets, as Buffet is the brand of choice for many professionals.
Buffet Crampon began manufacturing musical instruments in 1825 exclusively in France, but has since expanded their business to include production facilities in Germany and China as well. Since the company's conception, Buffet Crampon has expanded to a worldwide market.
540 participants gathered in Guiyang city for the first Buffet Crampon Clarinet Competition held in China. There are seven groups this time, for group, individual, pro and amateur. After several competition, NTNU student, Chang Ting, won the second place with C.Debussy: Premiere Rhapsodie and An-lun Hang: Capriccio. Ting has studied clairnet for more than a decade, and now she is a student of William Wei-Leng Chen, a renowned clarinetist. Students and teachers in the department of Music are all proud of her success.
