On September 21, George Enescu International Competition has chosen its winner for the Cello Section: South Korean cellist Hong Eun Sun, over the two finalists Tony Rymmer (US), second prize, and Sarah Rommel (US), third prize.

The artists serving on the 2014 Enescu Competition’s Cello Section Jury are: Lluís Claret(Andorra), Marin Cazacu (Romania), Frans Helmerson (Sweden) and Vladimir Malinovski (Austria).

Cellist Hong Eun Sun has interpreted D. Shostakovich – Concerto no. 1 for cello and orchestra in E flat Major op. 107, under the wand of Romanian conductor Ovidiu Balan, who declared before the cello finals that“Music means a precise form of freedom. Each interpretation is pure mathematics, where the score has to be respected. All the three soloists are very talented and well prepared and I hope that this evening they will be free to show the public what they feel through music.”

Second Prize went to 25-year-old American Tony Rymmer, who won Sphinx Competition in 2009, and Third Prize to another 25-year-old American, Sarah Rommel. Winners of the Piano and Composition categories will be announced in the coming week. For this edition, only 37 cellists have been selected for the competition.

Starting September 16, the Competition’s concerts and recitals may be also watched live on a Screen placed outside by the Romanian Athenaeum.
