OK, I don't see how Dasol Kim could *not* get into the finals.

...and as expected, Dasol Kim is slaying this.

Hmm, I kinda wonder what's going through Hamelin's head considering he was one of the major players in bringing Kapustin's music to the public's attention.

Yeah, there's no comparison at this point. Let's see what he does with the Schubert.

I've been thinking about this too. I'm sure it must be stressful for the competitors playing Kapustin to know they are playing for the man who brought Kapustin's work to the public's attention and is known as the premier (besides Kapustin himself) performer and recorder of his music.

Dasol understands the best way to approach Schubert's heavenly lyricism is not to phrase it too heavily or push and pull it too much. Let it flow simply and naturally, and beauty will speak for itself.

Among all his standout qualities, at the moment I'm astounded and perplexed at his finesse with the pedal.

Must be having bandwidth issues due to more people streaming now than before. My stream keeps freezing up. Very frustrating.

"Where's everyone tuning in from?" asks Jessica from medici tv with terrible timing. Shut up and let us listen to the first movement.

There's zero emoting or sentimental lingering. This man gets it.

Absolutely lovely Schubert...shame that the piano is out of tune in the upper register, etc.

Mad props for separating the last two chords in the first movement instead of pedaling through. It is details like this that separates the finalists from the medalists.

My streaming was so bad I really could tell anything. Ok here goes the second movement.

Can't help but to think of Richter when I hear this.

Going to have to reuse the "exquisite" I used for the Mendelssohn. Complete maturity at 28.

This second movement always makes me think of Hamlet's soliloquy.

Didn't really hear the first movement, but the second is world class. Very well developed with deep understanding of the piece.

Cougher in audience should remove himself.

The piano is going more out of tune in the upper register. Too many beats between the octaves. Brendan is right.
