Last Sunday, the cciMB 2018 semifinal round, which saw the performances of 13 extremely well-prepared young guitarists, came to an end. After a long discussion, the international Jury selected the following finalists: Fabian Cardozo (31) from Argentina and Jin-Hee Kim (32) from South Korea, both living in Switzerland, and Omar Nicho (25) from Chile. On Wednesday 2 May (19:00) at the CRR de Paris, each will play a concerto (Concierto del Sur by Manuel M. Ponce or Concert no. 1 by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco) accompanied by the Orchestre des Jeunes du CRR de Paris conducted by Xavier Delette, director of the CRR. In addition, they will perform Imbricatta, the cciMB 2016 commissioned composition by Sergio Assad, who will join the Jury for the occasion as well as the French cellist François Salque.
