Fejérvári a döntőben Bartók III. zongoraversenyét játszotta a Claus Peter Flor dirigálta Montreali Szimfonikusok kíséretében. A korábbi, szólófordulókban Janáček, Scriabin, Beethoven és Bach darabjait adta elő.

Győztesként péntek este gálakoncertet adhat majd, szintén a Montreali Szimfonikusokkal együtt zenélve. (CBC)

Gratulálunk Fejérvári Zoltánnak, ehhez a nagy teljesitményhez, és sikerhez. Büszkék vagyunk,hogy Magyarország fia az összes zonoristák élére került. Ez egy nagyon nagy teljesitmény. Bravó.
Sok sikert kivánunk neki.
