Seventy-eight applications were submitted from the United States, Russia, the Netherlands, Poland, Taiwan, Japan, China, South Korea, Germany, France, Italy, South Africa, Croatia, Mexico, Bulgaria, Serbia, Lithuania, and Ukraine. Of the 78 participants, 59 were solo instrumentalists and 19 were ensembles.
