Eight musicians have advanced in the Cleveland International Piano Competition to play hour-long recitals in the semi finals, which start today. Their programs must include something by a French impressionist composer, something by a romantic composer and a third work of whatever style or age they want. Performances are at 1 and 7 p.m. today and tomorrow at the Cleveland Playhouse’s Bolton Theatre (8500 Euclid Ave., 216.795.7000). Tickets: $15. — Michael Gill
