Cliburn: Playing on the Edge (2001 competition)
Playing with Fire (Cliburn 97)

"Beyond the Practice Room" was on PBS here Sunday night. The kids were about 13--18 and were sensational players, although I don't see any of them getting a job...no personality...

BTW, I bought the videos of Playing with Fire (local boy makes good Jon Nakamatsu won that one). If anyone interested, come on over (bring a six pack)...

Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed that little excerpt of Benjamin Grosvenor playing the Glinka piece.

Wow, I thought Natalia Kazaryan's interpretation of Bach had plenty of personality (as well as artistry, maturity, etc.).

Yeah, Lento, I did eventually get time to watch the whole series. It was very interesting to watch, and I forwarded the link to a few friends. I sure wish there was a YouTube video of Benjamin Grosvenor playing that entire Glinka/Balakirev piece! Beautiful!
