Semi-final cello 2022
Monday 16 May 2022 - Saturday 21 May 2022 (15:00 & 20:00) Flagey, Brussels
At each session, which consists of two parts, the public hears four different semi-finalists : the first two perform one of the concerti by Joseph Haydn with the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, conducted by Vahan Mardirossion.
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of two recital programmes proposed by the candidate, each including works of the candidate’s choice and the compulsory unpublished work written especially for this year’s edition by Daan Janssens (world première on Monday 16 May 2022). The jury's choice is communicated to the candidate the day before his recital and will then be indicated in the calendar below.
