The Queen Elisabeth Competition has published a CD set from the 2024 edition. The four discs contain a selection of the laureates’ performances of the Mozart Concertos with the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, as well as the major concertos from the repertoire from the finals. The best chamber music performances from the semi-final are also included.

There are three concertos for violin performed by the Belgian National Orchestra conducted by Antony Hermus: the First Prize winner of course, Dmytro Udovychenko in the Shostakovich Concerto and Joshua Brown (Second Prize) in the Brahms. The Tchaikovsky Concerto performed by Julian Rhee (Fifth Prize) and the compulsory work in the final by Thierry Escaich interpreted by Dmytro Udovychenko complete the performances with the BNO.

The concertos of Mozart performed by the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie conducted by Vahan Mardirossian open the second disc: the First Concerto KV 207 by Minami Yoshida (Sixth Prize) followed by the Fourth Concerto as interpreted by Kevin Zhu (Fourth Prize).

Considerable space is allocated to chamber music on these discs: from the Sonata No. 7 in C minor by Beethoven with Joshua Brown to the compulsory work in the semi-final by Charlotte Bray, not forgetting the Fantasia by Schubert with Elli Choi (Third Prize), this box set enables one to discover all twelve laureates of this session as they thrilled us during these 3 weeks of the competition.
