The Chopin competition is soon underway in Warzaw, with the first rounds apparently starting this weekend.
The list of participants(post preliminary eliminations) is posted on the competition website. I don't recognize many names with the exception of Claire Huangci, Evgeny Bozhanov (of recent Cliburn competition fame) and Mei-Ting Sun.

See list here

The jury this year includes Martha Argerich, Nelson Freire, Bella Davidovich, Nikolai Lugansky, Piotr Paleczny and Philippe Entremont, among others.

Do they webcast any of the rounds usually? I have not followed it closely in prior years.

wow, Martha Argerich is on the jury?
I'm excited for this year's competition!

On youtube, I'm able to find videos from past competitions, so maybe they'll post them up after.


If everyone wanted to play first violin, then there would be no orchestras. Each musician should therefore appreciate his proper place.

Anyone know if it's going to be streamed online?

Naomi Kudo was also a 2009 Cliburn contestant. Though I might be mistaken, I thought she was also a finalist at the 2005 Chopin... I guess you can re-enter?

I like that Lugansky is on the jury. His Chopin interpretations are superb and to my taste, (very romantic and expressive without gross rubato or sentimentalism.)

Somebody on their Facebook page asked whether it would be streamed live, and the response was that it would be.

I was thinking that it was a wonderful representation of pianists from around the world (except Africa :/)

I will be listening to the live streaming for sure!

I think it's very interesting and important how the face of piano playing has significantly changed fron 20-30 years ago. Do you know that at one time one could be arrested in China for playing the piano?

I think that the live stream will be from Polish television. Here's their portal to their competition page and quite a lot of other things about Chopin. I am guessing (but it is only a guess) that the live stream will be found there, once it starts.

That website has a scathing article about a concert by Pogorelich in Warzaw earlier this year.. Click on Ivo's pic..

Interesting how they still welcome and highlight Argerich despite her walking away from the jury once.
