I guess most concert performers have some funny/horror stories after they've been playing for a while. Harriet Wingreen, the former pianist for the NY Philharmonic who unfortunately passed away recently after retiring in her late 80s, told me that her music was blown off the music desk by air conditioning so she missed her entrance in some piece. The conductor was angry with her after the performance but she told him off haha!

They might schedule a repeat performance of the Rhapsody.

I can totally see this happening. Gergiev issued a personal apology to Narek Hakhnazarayan (cello winner in 2011) who was the victim of a racist remark by Mark Gorenstein, the conductor of the finals orchestra, so it's very possible that he'll intervene to let him perform again to smooth things over. Can't have the Tchaikovsky competition without drama, etc.

Super excited for my favorite "terrible twos" today (as in terribly difficult).

Yeah, those two are scary. I wonder how he's going to pull it off.

The the most cringeworthy orchestral mistake I've ever come across was at the 2018 Dublin International Piano Competition. At the end of the cadenza in the first movement of Prokofiev 2, the orchestra came in early. Such a place to mess up! Luckily the pianist won, so it was ok in the end.

Probably speaks to the difficulty of the orchestra parts to Kantorow's concerti...

Melnikov is going fine in Tchaikovsky. He might get an applause after 1st mvt.

Nope. He chose to be cautious.

I was hoping he would go for the ossia cadenza tbh, but his playing of this cadenza is really awesome.

Tchaik went better, IMO. The Rach feels rushed.

Maybe slightly rushed yeah. Not a big fan of how he played the opening melody either, His Tchaik was solid though.

According to the Competition's FB page, An was offered the chance to perform his concerti again (by unanimous jury consent) but refused. Yikes.
