She just played the Spannish Rappah. :stop: :stop: :stop:

Her octaves are good :ziff:
Then again, she wouldn’t accidentally play ninths

#7

This guy will play tomorrow (he’s the only candidate who chose to play on the Maene parallel string piano) He seems to be following the :doc: carreer path, one of the few Mephisto Waltz no. 3 performances available on youtube:

It’s possible, but I’m not sure I’d like to hear it… Who’s playing?

Probably something like:

175#1: 8 min
175#2: 7 min
529ii: 10 min
177: 10 min
173#4: 10 min

#10

Nobody yet, but tiz an admissible repertoire selection frum da lazt zemifinal round.

I can’t find where to zee the competitors’ rep choices.

Hoping to hear da Auber Tarantelle alzo.

#11

Hehe, would anyone dare when the most famous rec is Cziffra?

Rezpec da Purtainz indeed, which incidentally was played at the VERY FIRST piano recital da xsdc was in attendance for. :pimp:

#12

dai, I’ve seen diz mofo on da yung Ho Leningrad legendaire rectals.

#13

So far, da Nakata iz da mozt imprezzive IMO. Her passage work remindz mah-bad-zelf of da :ho:

#14

If u had gotten in, wut wuz ur rep diz tym?

#15

I worked a bit on da Contrabandistica fant randomly. A hard sheeyat!
Anyway - I didn’t plan the whole rep, I never do - until I actually get in 8)

#16

I think it’s very beneficial for ones career to program the Leslie Howard reconstruction of the Figaro Fantasy. This is randomly the only Liszt work where I think the Busoni version is better :rectum:

#17

Bergenhuizen plays the Contrabandista. I’ve heard him play it last month.
I just hope he plays it faster next week. :stop:

#18

da final round rep requirementz iz total zheeyat diz year, a lot of ztupid junk

#19

damn in contrabandista you’re essentially going toe-to-toe with some of the greatest technicians in recorded history, all for a sheeyat that barely lasts a minute. Not worth it.

#20

Wait a moment… are we talking this youtu.be/2X_hOY6tEvM?t=09s ?
