Hi Everyone,

Here is my interview with 1980 Chopin Competition First Prize winner, and current jury member, Dang Thai Son. He was the winner of the competition that ultimately made Ivo Pogorelich famous.
I asked him about Chopin, Daniil Trifonov, Ingolf Wunder, Vladimir Horowitz, Lang Lang, and his views on the Pogorelich controversy.

Thanks for reading, as always smile

Hey,

Thank you guys for reading and for the kind remarks. It's a great pleasure listening to what these talents have to say about their craft. Each one offers something a bit different.

I just published Part II in another thread; but you can also find it here. Should be more interesting than the first installment.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday smile
