And Then There Were Nine

8:00pm Friday night

Just got a phone call from Melissa over at Sundin Hall, where Alexander Braginsky took the stage to announce the names of the nine contestants who will advance to the next round. Here they are, in order of appearance for tomorrow's Schubert round:

Victoria Korchinskaya-Kogan
Gregory DeTurck
Edisher Savitski
Konstantin Krasnitsky
Angelo Arciglione
Mikhail Mordvinov
Ryo Yanagitani
Einav Yarden
Claire Huangci

Congratulations to these nine performers! Also, a heartfelt ovation for the other talented pianists - thank you for your outstanding contributions to five days of incredible musicmaking. We hope you'll be sticking around for the remainder of the two-week run to cheer on your colleagues, and to enjoy the sights & sounds & tastes of the Twin Cities.

Onward. The Schubertiad begins promptly at noon tomorrow (Saturday). It will wrap by 8pm, with an hour break from 2-3. Are you going to attend? You really should. There's nary a better return on your entertainment dollar than the cost of a day pass to this competition.

P.S. If you're planning to come, bring a sweater! It's freezing in the hall.
