Thanks for the link! Perusing the videos of the early rounds now. Interesting requirements of the repertoire. Qualies and Round 1 requires at least one of the last 3 piano sonatas. Round 2 is 60 minutes long, must include another sonata but cannot include any of the easy sonatas (Opus 2 No. 1, no Opus 49, no Opus 14, etc.). And no Diabelli Variations. And a major work from the first Viennese school (Schubert, Haydn, Schumann, Brahms, etc.).
Round 3 whittles it down to 6 performers, who can then play an easy Beethoven sonata, followed by a major 20th piano work (Hindemith, Stravinsky, Webern, Berg, Prokofiev, Schoneberg, etc.). Sorry, no Rach allowed.
Round 4 (semis) is down to 3. Must play a contemporary 21st century work no more than 10 minutes, followed by a Beethoven piano trio (but no"Archduke"!)
Final are those same 3 who must play 2 Beethoven piano concertos: either No. 1 in tandem with No. 3, or No. 2 in tandem with No. 4, or No. 5 in tandem with the piano version of the Violin Concerto. The jury gets to decide which grouping gets to be played in the Final.

And absolutely no applause from the audience at the end of each work (at least in the video I sampled). That wouldn't happen in the U.S.

Applause was allowed but only at the end of the entire program. As an audience member I always find this approach jarring and unpleasant. I guess the performers are used to it from other competitions and auditions but it seems so unnatural. Is it done just to save a few minutes of the judges' time? The only competition I have attended as an audience member had no applause even at the very end which I find even more unpleasant for the audience and the performer.
