For the participants of the National Cello Competition it was, of course, a loss not to be able to play William Walton’s Cello Concerto in front of a full concert hall. By rearranging the program the Finale is still varied and not only with piano accompaniment.
The Adagio from Haydn’s 13th symphony is nothing more than a slow movement from a cello concerto by Haydn, accompanied by a string ensemble. Like the Haydn, the modern composition of the participant’s own choice and Chopin’s Grande Valse originate from the Second Round.
The first two movements of Walton’s Cello Concerto are played, but now in the version that Jelte Althuis made two years ago for Matthew Barley and the Calefax Reed Quintet.
The jury of the eighth National Cello Competition comprises Monique Bartels (cello), Liza Ferschtman (violin), Quirine Viersen (cello), Reinhard Latzko (cello, from Graz), Jan-Ype Nota (cello), Ed Spanjaard (conductor), and jury chairman Sven Arne Tepl (director Residentie Orkest). Patty Hamel is secretary.
