Hakki has a thread on this in the "Pianist Corner" section. I thought it would be good to have one here too.
He has an exciting video of the Mephisto Waltz in it, I have Scriabin's 9th sonata ......and I know that at least a couple of other members here are participating too: LisztAddict and musica71.
Who else?

And I'm sure none of us will mind if you all come and look at our videos. smile

Or we can use this thread for general competition chit/chat. laugh

By the way, I plan to go to Chicago in June 2010. Hope you can go too.

For Berlin 2010, I'll have to see how US$ measure up to the Euro. If the US$ keeps falling at this rate, I cannot afford going to Berlin.

And believe it or not, I.P. (from Muenster) said to me that the trip to Boston was cheaper than to the trip to Berlin last year.

I was in Berlin for 3 days this last September. I know hotel for a day in central Berlin can cost as much as 5 days dorm in Wellesley. I had one plate of food and a small coke for lunch at KaDeWe, that was 22e.

LA -- I did a thread with my Scriabin under "Member Recordings."
I don't see that anyone else in the contest did that. How about you do one too, so I won't feel like I did something dirty or anything...... smile

Btw, I don't know if you've noticed the PW online E-citals. Since you are a Chopin addict, it would be nice to have your participation in the next Chopin E-cital on March 1, 2010.

Hey LA......this is gonna sound hilarious, but.....When I saw "Ecitals" I thought it was just a misspelling for Recitals. :-)

.....and while we're talking about the "spelling" of that word.....

One time, a bunch of us thought it was a good idea to make POSTERS for a friend who was giving a recital.
The name of the auditorium was Fine Arts Recital Hall.
On my poster, I purposely omitted the "i" in Recital.

Nobody noticed. ha

UPDATE (courtesy of a friend in the contest who has a sharp eye):

Apparently there will be MULTIPLE winners.
This is from the Cliburn website:

I saw that too. I doubt there will be more than 1 winner unless the winners are picked by a judging panel of professional pianists. There are many very good participants, and I couldn't even decide who I think is the best. But with this voting system, it's all about who can get the most votes from friends networks. It's a lot of fun to be in it, but I don't feel like being in a piano competition. smile

OK -- and the great thing is, we'll find out quite soon.

I feel sure there will be multiple winners, i.e. at least 2.
I had been wondering anyway (for various reasons) if they wished they had specified that there can be multiple winners, because that seemed like the most appropriate result. And the fact that they are now saying "winners" clinches it in my mind.

BTW.....while we're 'killing time' waiting for the results.....you might enjoy trying your hand at the "quiz" I posted on Pianist Corner. If you know the answer, please don't give it away for a while.

I happened to find it while googling some stuff and thought this site might find it interesting.

P.S. (edit) I deleted that post.....I might put it back later. Stay tuned.

Glad you found this thread, and maybe we'll see you in Fort Worth in '011!
Meanwhile maybe they'll be doing another youtube contest before that and we can see you in that too.....
BTW you can still see our videos if you want, even though the voting is over.

BTW......I took a glance at your profile and I see that your pianos include a Bosendorfer.
Cool! cool

I've often used them for performances. And as luck would have it, the place where I did my video has one among their house pianos. Bosendorfer for Scriabin might seem an odd choice, but I jumped at it.

You may also want to consider participating some other amateur competitions in 2010.

Here is a list.

OK......today was the day, and the result just came out.
The winner was someone that I think we'd have to consider a "dark horse," ChooHooi Khoo. I have my opinions and I'm going to try to keep them to myself smile because obviously I can't be objective, not just because I didn't "win," which I didn't expect to, but more so because I had ideas about who might win and I was very wrong. But I would be very interested in what other people's reactions might be. All the videos are still online.....

Cliburn amateur YouTube videos

.....and probably will be for some time.

Hers is over here:

Winner's video

Turns out the "winners" thing probably was just a typo!
