And off to the finals! 

During today’s afternoon the semifinals in the category PIANO took place in the St. Lawrence Church under the Petřín Hill. The contestants went from performing solo to a harmonic performance with the Zemlinsky Quartet. To some of the participants this change brought great success, but unfortunately only three of the best ones could advance to the Finals. Those are:

Lee Dongha from Republic of Korea

Lee Jaeyoung from Republic of Korea

Zukal Matouš from Czech Republic

The jury also awarded Vojtěch Trubač (Czech Republic) with the Honorable Mention.
