This is how Belgium's cello finalist Stéphanie Huang sounded in her final performance
The Queen Elisabeth Competition (QEC) for cello has seen the only Belgian finalist, Stéphanie Huang, performing last night. While Stéphanie was "relatively happy" with her performance, the reactions from the crowd and commentators were not so moderate. The young Belgian will know her final result in this prestigious classical music contest on Saturday.
"I am relatively happy. I did what I could, there is always room for improvement", Stéphanie remained modest just after her performance. The concerto of Antonin Dvorak is one her favourite works. It helped that she had played it before for a live audience at the Bozar. Commentators were impressed, and so was "De Zes", a jury of six cello students who know how difficult it is. They called her performance "phenomenal".
