This year the scoring's pass/fail: Each judge chooses 12 contestants to advance and 3 "next best", and whoever is chosen by the most advances.

good try for Huangci to play the sleeping beauty, but she's no equal of Bozhanov's (on YT).

Thank you! Are you saying that's official, and that's all -- i.e. there are no longer any numerical scores for each candidate? If so, indeed that avoids the problem I talked about.
(And I'll edit out the wrong stuff from the previous post.)

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

Here's an interview where Giordano (the jury chair) discusses the scoring this year.

Thank you, Marty and Kcostell.
Meanwhile also I had found this article that refers to "the new 'pass/fail' scoring system." Apparently it is new this year.

I like his Beethoven except he's laying on the pedal too thickly.

+1

This hit me over the head right away -- in that passage starting at measure 12, where he pedaled through the 2nd and 4th beats. But this is darn good -- he's doing A LOT of terrific things. If he doesn't advance, I have to say he's darn good for someone who doesn't advance. smile

Koziak's on my own list of people I want to see advancing (along with Sangiovanni, Kholodenko, Chernov, Chen, and Dumont), but I'm not sure if I'd put him on the list of people I think will advance.

True. He played so long ago that I'd almost forgotten him. His first recital was Chopin/Szymanowski/Rachmaninov; next he turns to Beethoven and Brahms, so we'll get to hear a different era.

This piano has such a liquidy sound he barely needs any pedal at all. Ack, he's drowning this puppy.

He also got a teeny bit sloppy in the last movement. Minus the overpedaling, I liked most of what he did.

This Franck is a beautiful piece, why do we never hear it?

Come to the amateur competitions and you'll hear it your share! smile
Not a whole lot, but several contestants have played it.

And I think it does get played a fair amount in recital.

(BTW, I had forgotten about Franck when I did this post on the Clementi thread.....just added him.)

It's a beast to memorize and the technical stuff isn't flashy , while still being brutal on the fingers. seems like the antithesis of a good competition piece. (not to say I dont LOVE the franck)

The 'chorale' passage that he just finished is, I think, unintentionally funny, because you're always wondering if the player will get to each next high note in time -- it's not easy -- and very often, people don't. He didn't particularly.

I had only heard all three Schubert played together once before(Kraskovsky) and after that concert I thought they didn't work together so well(too long). But Huangci's performance made me change my mind about that. I also thought her Tchaikovsky was sensational although I like Pletnev's Nutcracker transcription more.

I thought Sangiovanni's Beethoven was sensationally good and his Franck equally terrific so far. Maybe he will even make me like the fugue(which I have not previously liked).
