Thoughts on the Cliburn 2022
on: June 30, 2022, 07:39:10 PM
Just curious. What are your thoughts on the participants of the Cliburn? Stephen Hough's Fanfare Toccata, who should've got in, who shouldn't? Interesting programs etc. (Basically anything about the competition  ;D)
Some Current Repertoire:
Scriabin: Sonatas 2,4 and 5
Chopin: Ballade 1,4, Scherzo 1
Rachmaninoff: Concerto 3
Ravel: Gaspard de la Nuit
Barber: Sonata
Beethoven: Appassionata

Sorry to say I don't watch competitions :( I rarely feel the competition pianists grab my interest compared to the pianists I like to listen to at home.

I don't as a rule watch them either, but I did watch the winner's semifinal recital (full Liszt TEs) and it was one of the most stunning performances I have ever seen.
