Thanks everybody.

The scores of the competitors were released.

I came in 3rd out of 14. For me this was a prize far greater than winner, it was a truely great experience. Since the competition was open to musicians 12-21 there were people with twice as much musical experience as me.

My teacher told me she was very VERY proud of me and that essintially made my MONTH not just day.

I thought the performance was excellent. When I posted a comment, though, it turned up under the youtubename of a houseguest who had stayed with me a month ago. Go figure.

Congratulations!
It is a very good performance, keep up the good work!

Did you play the whole concerto? If so, can you upload the other movements too? I would like to listen to it all! \:\)

Nope ecm, I have the first movement down but my teacher said to bag this one and move on to a "stronger" concerto. This concerto is a real baby compared to the major concertos.

Very impressive, Matt!

It must have been very uncomfortable to be sitting there twiddling your thumbs waiting. ;-)

Your playing was very clean and precise. Your hands looked very relaxed while your fingers flew over the keys.

Be proud!
