Van Cliburn competition

February 18th, 2009 No comments
The last couple of days, I’ve attending the screening audition recitals for the Thirteenth Competition of Van Cliburn International Piano Competition at Rockefeller University. I always appreciate classical music performers in that they make me possible to meet the great composers. Although I’ve attended recitals of many virtuosos in New York, I love to go to these kinds of competition because it’s more immersive than big concert halls and there is a chance to listen a piece of contemporary music or rarely played one. This time, I could meet A. J. Kernis’s Superstar Etude No.2 and Medtner’s Sonata tragica, Op. 39, No. 5 among others. You can watch the live stream online at www.cliburn.org during May 22 – Jun 7, 2009 when the competition is held in Fort Worth, Texas.
