Semi-final violin 2015
Monday 11 May 2015 - Saturday 16 May 2015 (15:00 & 20:00) Flagey, Brussels
Programme to be performed by the semi-finalists
At each session, which consists of two parts, the public hears four different semi-finalists: the first two perform a Mozart concerto with the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, conducted by Paul Meyer. The Mozart concerto will be chosen from Concertos K. 216 (No. 3 in G major), K. 218 (No. 4 in D major), and K. 219 (No. 5 in A major).
After the break, the other two perform their recitals, with piano accompaniment. The jury will choose one of two recital programmes proposed by the candidate, each including works of the candidate’s choice, the Sonata in E minor, Op. 27 No. 4, by E. Ysaÿe, and the compulsory unpublished work written especially for this year’s competition by Vykintas Baltakas.
