Great Prize of Epinal City in 2011
J. S. Bach: French Suite # 5, BWV 816
L. van Beethoven: Sonata # 28, Op 101
M. Ravel: Sonatine
C. Vine: Sonata # 1
The friendship between the International Piano Competition in Epinal, the City of Seloncourt and "Le Salon de Musique" is spreading. This season the winner of the 2011 Epinal Competition will also play in Pontarlier. It was predictable, since it is the young Korean Da Sol. In 2010 we followed the course of a finalist in the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, in 2011 we were in the hall when he won almost by acclamation the first prize of Epinal. Bring your family, and especially with your neighbors to get back together, because at this level of excitement is contagious musical friendship.
Saturday 18th February - 20h30 - Seloncourt (25) and Sunday 19th February - 17h30 - Pontarlier (25)
