Just curious if any of the Chopin aficionados on this site are following the Ninth National Chopin Piano Competition in Florida (chopin.org, with live streaming through March 1, which IS Chopin's birthday) - and if anyone has favorites?

There is my friend starting there and he is my favorite of course wink. And I'm looking forward to Wright's performance, he is so helpful and kind.
We'll see in two days who is finalist!

I don't like her approach to any piece by Chopin.
What do you think about this?


I did not like it either. I prefer Rubinstein and I found recently another one which I like it as well:

Thanks for posting about this (the Chopin competition)! Just tuning in now. I'll be interested in Josh Wright's performance too (as in Josh who does the tutorials right?).

Yes, the Josh Wright who does those excellent tutorials! That's how I learned about this; he said he would stop posting for a week or so to participate in this competition. So interested in what happens with this. I'm following another competitor as well.

It seems that Yundi slipped away from the Chopin competition jury for a few days to be best man for his friend's wedding in Shanghai.

Yundi back on jury

Although I was conscious that I'd been in Warsaw 5 years ago as of this week, it somehow hadn't gotten through to me that the finals of the competition were going on right now.
