Rising Piano Competitions
« on: October 16, 2015, 10:15:35 PM »
What are some rising competitions?

There's been some talking about how some competitions are getting worse, i.e. the Leeds Competition, the Concours Geneva, the Long-Thibaud, etc.

How about looking at another angle? WHat are some rising competitions?


I thinl one is the Cooper Piano Competition. So far there has been 3 competitions for piano. Some past prizewinners include:
George Li (2nd prize at Tchaikovsky Competition),
 Kate Liu (go see the Chopin Competition, which she is currently a finalist),
 Anna Han (NOIPC winner),
Leonardo Colafelice (finalist at both the Rubinstein Competition and a prizewinner at the Busoni Competition),
Micah McLaurin (guest artist at the Southeastern Piano Festival),
Annie Zhou (you guys know her)
& Tony Yike Yang (also competing in the Chopin Competition. Right now, he's a finalist.)

What are some other rising competitions? I think the Liszt Competition for YOUNG MUSICIANS in Weimar is rising. Prizewinners include:
 Yuanfan Yang (winner of the Cleveland International Piano Competition's Young Artist Competition, Sr. Division)
Alim Beisambeive (winner of the Cliburn Jr.)
Mariam Bhatsasvhili (winner of the Liszt Competition in the Netherlands, 2014)

Tbh though it might've been just me saying that the Leeds, Long, and Geneva were getting worse. :P but yeah, they certainly don't produce any more Pollinis, Perahias, Pompa-Baldis.... or Schiffs or Uchidas

In that time I used to listen and re-listen to the Polonaise-Fantasy, I could've made that Chopin Barcarolle 100000000x more beautiful and lyrical

I came home at the correct time, and spent too much time on PS, and then I spent 1 hour trying to relearn Ravel and Beethoven  :P Now I'm Bach  :-[
