The final round will begin on Wednesday at 7.30pm.  Each competitor performs twice: on June 7–8, each finalist will join the Brentano String Quartet for a piano quintet.   Then, on June 9–10, each will perform a concerto with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leonard Slatkin.  Excitingly for the audience, no two competitors will play the same piano concerto, with repertoire consisting of: Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2 and No. 3, Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4, and Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

The winners of the Fifteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition will be announced in the Awards Ceremony, which begins  at 7.00pm on June 10. As always, the finals can be streamed live at cliburn2017.medici.tv.  Besides the performances, presenters Anderson and Roe give a fascinating insight into life backstage.  The finals will also be broadcast at a later date on Classic FM, who are the Cliburn’s Official UK Broadcast Partner.
