Nine Senior semi-finalists will play for their place in the coveted Senior Finals. This round sees each violinist collaborate with pianists to perform 19th Century sonatas from Franck, Poulenc and Ravel and give world premiere performances of a new commission by Mark O’Connor. Each semi-finalist will also perform the 1st movement of a Mozart concerto including a self-composed cadenza, as well as a virtuoso work of their choice with or without piano.
This concert will be streamed at 2021.menuhincompetition.org and on the Menuhin Competition YouTube channel at 10:00am and 2:00pm.
