Classical Notes

We're down to six

Moments ago, Alexander Braginsky announced the six finalists who will go on to compete in the last two Rounds of the e-Competition. He also told us that a Schubert prize winner had been selected, but we won't find out who that person is until Thursday night at the Awards Ceremony. I know you're dying to know the names of the six, so here we go:

Victoria Korchinskaya-Kogan
Gregory De Turck
Edisher Savitski
Mikhail Mordvinov
Ryo Yanagitani
Einav Yarden

Tomorrow, they rehearse with the Nicollet Quartet and on Monday each will perform in the Chamber Music Round. By the way, I hope you like Brahms because four of the six will be playing his Piano Quintet--and those are back-to-back performances! The Concerto Round is another story. Six different pieces and six different composers. Click on the link below to learn more.

Does anyone know why Claire Huangci didn't make it to the next level? I thought her performance of Schubert, Sonata in A Major; D959 was nice but I wouldn't know if she omitted passages, etc.

I would be interested in hearing what the judges heard and saw that eluded me.
