From the neck up Mathilde looks astonishingly beautiful and radiant..at least a decade younger!

But I just can't with that outfit....

"Given the current circumstances, the 2020 Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition will unfortunately not be able to take place on the scheduled dates (4 to 30 May 2020)."

Queen Elisabeth Music Competition, 2008-2020

The Queen Elisabeth contest is cancelled due to the corona crises. TV channels and radio stations will explore their archives and broadcast the best performances and the history of the contest.
Queen Mathilde encourges us to meet virtually and enjoy these broadcasts,

Agreed! Giving older winners a second opportunity to be acknowledged and musical connoisseurs an opportunity to review the evolution of the performances over the years seems like a win-win.

Queen Mathilde send a message about the start of the competition:

"The Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition starts today! 58 pianists from 16 countries take part in the first round. What a joy to be able to once again discover exceptional young talents from all over the world."

Nice that they were thoughtful enough to put a photo portrait and a buste of Queen ELisabeth in the background.

I watched the first round -on piano- yesterday. I am glad the competitioon can go ahead this year.
