News from the Busoni Competition
The Busoni International Competition has announced the winners. The first prize winner is something a of suprise, at least to me, as his performance at the Cliburn didn't get him beyond the semi-finals. They are:
1st prize. Giuseppe Andaloro (Italy)
2nd Prize Mariangela Vacatello (Italy)
3rd Prize Hye-Jin Kim (South Korea)
Spencer Myer who generated excitement (despite not winning) at the Cleveland Competition doesn't leave Italy entirely empty handed. He recieved an audience "recognition" award.
Details and more here and here.
You can download and listen to Andaloro playing the Beethoven 4th Piano Concerto here on ClassicCat.
