Some of you know already, and for anyone that is interested: I've been taking part in a piano competition and have reached the finals! Which means - I'm playing Prokofiev 5th concerto with orchestra this thursday! The finals are wednesday-thursday, and are broadcasted on radio. As far as I know, there'll be a videostream online too:

Now, back to the practicing room....

Congrats!

I love the Prokofiev 5th concerto. What an underplayed masterpiece.

I'm really glad to see you doing well. You're a positive force for all kinds of great music, well-known and not.

Wait, isn't it scheduled for 7pm GMT+2?

If you're in Ohio, you're GMT-5, so that's 12pm, yes?

Congratulations! Prokofiev 5th is, believe it or not, my favorite of his concertos, and though I'm always happy to see anyone playing it, I think it suits you particularly well. Best of luck to you, and hopefully, if not live, I'll get to hear the performance!

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Tons of work remains until thursday - luckily, some time remains. Like D.S.F., I find the Prok 5th a particularly appealing and underperformed piece - let's hope it gets a little revival (in Finland, at least..) after this!

The finals have started! Time to bump this thread. The video stream might not be working, or...? I heard there were some troubles. Here's the link to the radio broadcast, but I have no idea whether its possible to listen outisde of finland or not...

Just a friendly reminder - before any discussions start - that this is the internet, and its very much possible that any comments made on the pianists performing will be found by them afterwards. This is not an unknown forum after all. Also, be aware that we were all given ONE rehearsal, lasting less than an hour (plus a run-through on the concert day, of course). Acceptable circumstances perhaps for the three pianists playing Liszt first - slightly trickier with a piece like Prok 5th, but the orchestra is overall doing a good job, and seem to enjoy playing the piece!

Wow, what a great opportunity for you, congratulations!

>be aware that we were all given ONE rehearsal, lasting less than an hour

Wow. I spend hundreds of hours on getting all things right, I can even spend a full hour with my teacher on the interpretation of a simple piece . And now you have to do this in less than an hour with a complete orchestra. How exactly does that work?

Do tune in tonight anyone who is interested, the last day of finals in the Ilmari Hannikainen competition offers a very interesting program: Englund 1st concerto, Prokofiev 5th, and Liszt 1st. Video streaming! Concert starts in 2 hours. The radio link probably only works in Finland, try the video streaming link I posted in my initial message
