First step (out of 4) of the preliminary rounds of the Competition are done

The jury has auditioned nearly 110 candidates during these 4 intense days.
The program is particularly interesting but also difficult, with a large gap between the expressiveness and lyricism of Rachmaninov, and the finesse and classicism of Mozart.

The crew is now heading for Beijing for the next stage of the preliminary rounds, before Montréal and Besançon!
