Unless you've been locked up in a practice room somwhere, you probably already know that the Leeds International Pianoforte Competition is underway. The website for the competition is right here.
Here's the list of competitors. (It includes some relatively new faces to the competition circuit, more than a few who surely must be pushing against the upper-age limit for most competitions (Roberto Plano) and more than mere smattering of those who didn't make the cut at the last Van Cliburn International Piano Competition):
Soo Jung ANN
Daniel DE BORAH
Elizabeth Joy ROE
Mimi Jue WANG
Chen Xin XU
My quick pick going into it is the incredible Chu-Fang Huang. It will also be interesting to see how Maria Mazo fares after having put all her eggs in one basket, always a big gamble, with a single work (Beethoven's Hammklavier) at the Cliburn, she strikes me as worthy a serious second hearing.
And hear them you can via the BBC Radio. Very nice.
