Thirty-one young pianists ages 14 through 18 representing seven countries square off through six days of performances. These remarkable young artists begin with recital repertoire and advance through Semifinal rounds to the Concerto Round, where the field narrows to 10 pianists. Six accomplished musicians perform in the Recital Finals, and only three pianists reach the summit and move on to the Concerto Finals with The Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall.
CONCERTO FINALS ROUND - Friday, July 20
Three pianists perform complete concertos. The performance is broadcast live in northeast Ohio on WCLV 104.9 FM and worldwide online.
