Not sure about everything, but ALL of Liszts teanscendental etudes and Franck quintet.
Concertos- Prok 3 and Mozart 21

Chopin 24 preludes was one of the things. And Schumann quintet.
Concertos- Beethoven 3 and Prok 2nd

Sean Chen:
Bach French Suite 5, some Ligeti etudes, Petrushka. And Brahms quintet
Concertos- Rach 3, Beethoven 5

They also all played the commissioned piece of course- Theofanidis' Birichino.
And btw, you can still find their semifinal performances on the Cliburn's channel, I believe.
