Hello Everybody

In 30 minutes starts the final of our piano competition "Top of the World" in Tromsø, Norway, with 3 fantastic pianists playing 3 piano concerti. Tchaikovksy 1, Rachmaninoff 2 and Beethoven 5.

The three pianists are Francois Dumont, Emanuel Rimoldi and Lukas Vondracek, all well known young pianists.

Tune in for a great final! Its also a world record in camera angles in a piano competition! (For what its worth Wink

Thanks for the link! I watched the finals as well as some of the prelims. I thought all three finalists gave very impressive performances, although I would have given François Dumont the top prize. The jury obviously had a tough choice to make.

Unfortunately, the internet stream was constantly dropping out at approx. every 4 - 8 bars, so it was hard to ascertain certain things such as direction of a phrase, ensemble, etc. Sad So I am very much looking forward to the YouTube uploads!
