Cliburn Chatter: Yang

I can't stand to watch it's too painful. Is she playing the piano or acting? I'm sorry folks, but it just looks sooo contrived and idiotic to me.

Good call. I have some serious issues with Ms. Yang placing among the medalists - as seem likely from the buzz on the competition blog. If a 19-year old who is still several layers and dimensions away from being a convincing, original musician is the best they can find, I say scrap the whole darn Cliburn. Are people giving her a couple strokes' handicap for youth or being won over by the ridiculous emoting? Let's hope the judges don't fall into the same trap.

Thanks for posting, Jason.

I'm with you in hoping the judges don't fall for it.

Finger crossed!
