So glad Tony Yike Yang and Yuri Favorin are making it into the semifinals! Really bummed for Alyosha Jurinic, though--he was my absolute favorite of all of them, and I think the most mature. But Tony gave a heart-stopping, jaw-dropping, mind-numbingly beautiful performance of the Liszt B minor sonata today. I have never heard an interpretation of that piece by ANYONE that matched what I saw today. That one is going to do great things with his music!

Was also bummed about su yeon kim and  Luigi. IMO, they played better than Kenneth Broberg and Rachel Cheung, but the judges' choices were reasonable. Broberg played a very convincing barber, and cheung's preliminary performance was pretty good. I am very pleased to see everyone in the semifinals. Good luck to them!

I'm attending several of the semi-final rounds. So far, Yuri Favorin is my favorite. While the Adagio in his "Hammerklavier" was too slow at nearly 25 minutes, the rest was great, especially the big Fugue, and his Shostakovich Sonata No.1 was brutal and intense beyond belief!

I'm surprised that Han Chen did not make it to the finals, but I'm thrilled that Favorin and Tchaidze did.
