I was hoping too based on his Chopin but having just watched his Pathétique there was a major blunder.

Banjo is a safe pick.

That's one I missed! (What's the "oud"?) I remember a lot of them, include the hardart (which I still hope eventually to build) ha but.....that's a new one on me!

I think I'd be at a total loss -- even without any attempt to be political or diplomatic, I think I just wouldn't have an answer. I think that after just phumphing for a few seconds, I'd probably wind up saying something stupid like "anything that they blow right into my ear"....and I'd laugh, hoping that the interviewer would laugh too, and we'd be on to the next thing....

You want to make friends with the people who play them, not enemies -- or else they might not practice their parts of your piano concertos very well. grin

Or bagpipe?

I can't put my finger on it, but there's something about McDonald's playing tonight that's keeping my attention.

Well, it is a very unfair question coming from a Cliburn staff interviewer, and Lin was apologetic about disliking flutes. They asked Scipione what his favorite body part was.

This was a dude, not Jade. These are the pre-filmed interviews where they click the little film thingy. But coccyx would be a good answer.

I think that McDonald is giving a career building performance.

Mark_C - It's a real instrument. Google it. My favorite of all time is the double reed slide music stand.

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

Quite a performance so far (third mvt Petrouchka). Great tone from the American Steinway.

I'm very glad to hear that. I was surprised that she would have asked such a dumb thing -- and she didn't.

Did! And came up empty!

Not my cup of tea but I think he has a very good chance to advance. I think he will.

Understandable.

But it was still an amazing and exciting performance.

When he put his hanky down on the floor I was afraid he was going to give a speech. Horrors!
