Chopin Competition on Period Instruments 2018; live (now)

this has been ongoing several days, afternoon session is livestreaming, super cool/interesting, to do this on (Erards from 1838, 1849 and 1858; Pleyels from 1846 and 1854; and a Broadwood from 1843), as well as originals and copies of period instruments brought in by European restorers and collectors.

I've been following this also! It is very interesting but there seems to almost be something backward about micing and live-streaming such old instruments. You don't get the finesse and personality on youtube that you do in person, and it really just sounds like an out of tune upright.
You might have seen one of my videos without knowing it was that nut from the forum
