Queen Elisabeth Competition 2019: violin

Queen Elisabeth Competition 2019: violin


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 Jean-Jacques Kantorow. The Mozart concerto will be chosen from Concertos K. 207 (No. 1 in B flat 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 (containing one sonata for violin and piano), E. Ysaÿe’s 3rd and 4th movements of the Sonata in G minor, Op. 27 No. 1, and the compulsory unpublished work written especially for this year’s competition by Bram Van Camp.
