Just snuck into this page for a quick look and couldn't put it down -- too busy laughing my *** off. The primary poster on this page goes by "Despina 41", and she (I think -- hard to tell) is a hoot with a vast knowledge of piano literature. Sort of a hybrid of James Joyce, Robin Williams and Harold Schonberg. Well worth a visit.

I agree. The weepy first violin is driving be nuts. The violist and cellist would make a good foundation for a new quartet, however.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Agreed... they sounded much better the times I heard them live though.

Thanks for putting us onto that! And you characterized it spot-on.

I just spent a fair amount of time reading through it, and laughed an awful lot. The only reason I didn't read everything was, there's just too much, all of it pretty neat and a lot of fun.

BTW, [s]he notes the absence of late Brahms like Op. 116-119, as I did also.

P.S. Although as you said she's extremely knowledgeable, we can add her to the many who don't really know Chopin's 4th Scherzo. grin
She clearly didn't have a clue about what Daneshpour did to it.

Not really. I haven't done anything bad -- just not "ready for the highest prime time." grin

I think Rana's concentration and focus draw the listener in... in the manner of Kissin.

That's a really pretty gown. Probably pretty expensive, too, given the appliqued ribbon swirls.

Rana is Rana, but if there's a comparison to be made I'd say she reminds me more of De Larocca than Kissin.

I like the images of Rana's hands during the Chopin, she has an admirable technique and her hands are pretty. However I am not taken by her interpretation.

To add a word to my post, I'd be curious as to her first teachers who formed her with this technique.

Interesting, I think she's much more like Kissin or Argerich than de Larrocha. Rana is playing her chosen repertoire excellently, but I can't really imagine her pulling off Scarlatti, Mozart, Schubert, or even some Beethoven as convincingly. Though of course I would be happy to be proven wrong!

Not a fan of this Raindrop, but I think she's doing a great job with the preludes so far! Interested to see how Dong's will hold up in comparison...


Working on:

The characters and colors she's able to create are incredible IMO, but I find many of her tempi to be too impetuous for my taste. I felt this throughout the Scriabin, as well as several of the preludes (esp. nos. 3, 10, 11, 16). Is it just me?

EDIT: And she had only gotten to 17 at that point... I thought the same of 18 and 19.

I don't think it works that way, or at least I hope it doesn't -- i.e. comparing players head-to-head because they're playing the same pieces. I would hope that each gets considered on her own terms.

I admit that in this discussion, I've talked about some of the performances that way too, especially on the Liszt Sonata, but that was because I was replying to posts where this was already being done. I don't think I'll be evaluating Dong on how it compares with Rana -- especially considering that Dong seems to be a quite unusual musician (as competitions go!), and therefore that the only fair way to evaluate her (IMO) is on her own terms.


P.S. (unrelated) Anyway else feel that Rana's two closing chords of Prelude #18 foreshadowed #20 (C minor)?

Maybe this is an accepted and well-known thing about that ending to #18, but I've never heard it, and never noticed or thought of it before. All I know is that when she hit those chords (and the way she hit them), I immediately thought of #20, and never had before.

Oh I know, but it's interesting to see how people approach the same works differently. Isn't that sort of what the required piece is about? Seeing who "got the right idea" the best. But the Preludes, yes, leave a lot of room for artists to be individual.

Funny that I find a lot of her tempi to be very natural...but that's because my benchmark recording of the preludes is performed by Argerich.

Chopin - Nocturne op. 48 no.1

On another note, I think Rana's preludes are wonderful! She really had a great legato sound on the E-flat major prelude.

I think Rana's rubato is very controlled and restrained. Maybe that's how Chopin played the piano, but I would prefer a little more freedom and flexibility between languor and vigor.

Another excellent program for Rana. She's still the one to beat, IMO.

Also, since we're halfway through the semis, here's where I think it stands:

Rana
Chen
Kholodenko
Deljavan
Mndoyants
Sakata

I am impressed as to how few people have come to hear the auditions.

Only heard the last 8-9 preludes or so by Rana, but thought all of that was top playing! She's absolutely up there in the front. Not sure about some of the remaining predictions of Brendan,but let's see.

Correcting for Brendan's errors grin (and anyway I'm sure he is soon to be banned for that other post):

Rana
Deljavan
Kholodenko
Huangci
Gillham
Dong

Mndoyants
Chen
Khozyainov
Chernov
Abrosimov
Sakata

(Do I really think Dong is in the top 6? I honestly couldn't tell you. Our discussion took on too much of a life of its own.) grin

Main thing I'm thinking is dam, I wish there were like 8 slots in the finals....
