Keyboard Final Highlights

Keyboard Final Highlights: In the last of the category finals, we find out who will take the last place in this year’s BBC Young Musician grand final. Five talented musicians compete in a fiercely contested competition, playing works by Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Scriabin, and Scarlatti, among other keyboard masters. They are Jacky Zhang (14), Ethan Loch (17), Firoze Madon (18), Duru Erdogan (18) and Dida Condria (19).

Highlights from Saffron Hall in Essex are presented by pianist and composer Alexis Ffrench and saxophonist Jess Gillam.

Our jury’s chair, organist and conductor Anna Lapwood, is joined by Tom Poster, winner of the BBC Young Musician Keyboard Final in 2000, Daniel Tong, head of piano in chamber music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and the other judges.

The lineup for this year’s BBC Young Musician grand final will be set at the conclusion of the show. Each of the five category winners will play a concerto with the BBC Philharmonic under Mark Wigglesworth’s direction. On Sunday, October 9, the evening of the final, BBC Four broadcasts the event live from Bridgewater Hall.
