BREAKING | Michiaki Ueno Awarded 1st Prize 2021 Geneva Cello Competition

He will receive CHF 20,000 plus an invitation to join the competition's two-year career development program — providing valuable career advice, coaching, concerts, and recording opportunities

 

25-year-old Michiaki Ueno from Japan has been awarded first prize at the 2021 Geneva International Cello Competition, in Geneva, Switzerland.

An artist-in-residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, where he studies with Gary Hoffman and Jeroen Reuling, and former student of Pieter Wispelwey and Hakuo Mohri, Michiaki is a former top prize winner at the Lutoslawski and Brahms International Cello Competitions.

The second and third prizes were awarded to 24-year-old Bryan Cheng from Canada and 15-year-old Jaemin Han from South Korea.

For the Final Round, each of the finalists performed either Schumann's, Elgar's, Lutoslawski's, or Shostakovich's 2nd Cello Concerto, or Dutilleux's "Tout un monde lointain."
