I'm surprised by the eloquency of Bax. Does anyone know the name of the 14-year-old winner of the Hammatsu competition?

Stunning! He must've only been like 18 or something!

Me too. If his playing is half as mature as his words sound, he s one to watch closely.

I definitely think that he's a sensitive artist. He just posted his own program notes. Interesting to read what he had in mind: https://docs.google.com/document/d/...h7HbIKAcZCdKfMqI/edit?hl=en_US&pli=1

You can find a masterclass of him playing the Fugue from the Hammerklavier for Barenboim on YouTube. Here's part 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLRvOnbbpnI

Thanks, cho. I checked some of his work and i quite like his repertoire choices. he pplays the Liszt Handel sarabande and Chaconne from Almira, a weakness of mine!. His Bach is pretty neat too. Thanks for the link, will check it later at home.

Ooh??? He plays the Liszt-Handel Chaconne and Sarabande! So do I!!! The only recording I could find of it is Leslie Howard's, though, and I really don't like Howard's playing that much. I will check it out!

I have Bax's CD with that on it. "Baroque Reflections" and it is quite a good one. His recording of the Liszt-Handel Chaconne and Sarabande is fantastic!
