I'm surprised by the eloquency of Bax. Does anyone know the name of the 14-year-old winner of the Hammatsu competition?

Me too. If his playing is half as mature as his words sound, he s one to watch closely.

I definitely think that he's a sensitive artist. He just posted his own program notes. Interesting to read what he had in mind: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IQfb...en_US&pli=1

You can find a masterclass of him playing the Fugue from the Hammerklavier for Barenboim on YouTube. Here's part 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLRvOnbbpnI

Ooh??? He plays the Liszt-Handel Chaconne and Sarabande! So do I!!! The only recording I could find of it is Leslie Howard's, though, and I really don't like Howard's playing that much. I will check it out!

I have Bax's CD with that on it. "Baroque Reflections" and it is quite a good one. His recording of the Liszt-Handel Chaconne and Sarabande is fantastic!
