* For this new second round, candidates will have to present:

  1. most of the pieces already validated and presented for the rounds 2 and 3 of the competition planned in April
  2. the mandatory piece Piano works : n°3 – “Black Letters” by Pascal Dusapin
  3. the Special Prizes previously validated

Candidates will also have to write a new note of intent. Given the situation, new pieces may be accepted if necessary, to give consistency to your program.

Candidates will: either integrate points 2 and 3 into the program of point 1, if your whole program is coherent; or play points 2 and 3 after the program of point 1, separately.
