Leeds Piano Competition

The first round of cuts have been made. Click here for a list of those who didn't get auf'd. And a certain someone may be happy to know Tom Poster has survived the first cut.

Still early, but all of the my first impression cold-picks have made the cut. BBC has broadcasts available (details here). Too bad it's not quite as a tech-savy as the last Cliburn. Ah well...

Is it still to early for dead-pool bets? If you've thoughts, favs, pans and picks, drop a comment.

Good luck to all!

Chu Fang Huang is pretty amazing.

What was the biggest surprise in the results?

For me always is surprizing when children of musicians whose parents are pofessors in conservatories are failing... I know that if you are raised in a musical family (like Mozart or Bach) you become a professional musician. For example, Alexander Shtarkman whose father,Naum, was professor, won Busoni competition and Tchaikovsky and was Van Cliburn competition finalist.

Tell me please who is your favourite pianist from this competition?
People, open your eyes! Don't you see that the best pianists were eliminated from the first round?
