Gosh.I wonder how the jury will react to him refusing. Very weird decision by An.

Huh?! Why would he refuse?!


That's what everyone is wondering. If he played again and it didn't go well, he would be out fair and square. I guess he gives him a chance to claim Pogorelich status so he can control the narrative if he doesn't get a prize from yesterday's performance.

Meanwhile, what a BREATH OF FRESH AIR Tchaik Second is. Both the orchestra and Kantorow sound awesome.

Finally someone who is playing from his heart. Thanks to Kantorow.

This concerto is actually very beautiful, very underrated compared to the first concerto.

Criminally underrated. Whenever a pianist says he's learning "the Tchaikovsky concerto", I ask them which one. I already know their answer, but perhaps it helps some of them to remember that there actually are other concertos by Tchaikovsky for the piano...and that brilliant Concert Fantasy, op 56.

Out of the competitors that have played so far Kantorow is for me without a doubt the winner.

See, he's not my cup of tea. Very nice playing though.

Even if he doesn't win IMO he might be another Lucas Debargue.

The audience loved it too, it seems. First standing ovation of the finalists.

I am absolutely speechless after that performance. The Tchaikovsky was wonderful, powerful, melodic, magisterial, and the orchestra played with incredible sensitivity. The Brahms was doubly so - literally everything you could ask for from that piece and more. Just when you think the level can't get any higher, you get something like this. If they're truly only judging on the finals as Barry Douglas said yesterday in his interview, Kantorow is clearly the winner by miles. What's also astounding is that Kantorow and Debargue have the same teacher - I think her rates are about to go up big time.

...and the An Tianxu issue is causing a major blowup on social media.

Admittedly I tuned in and out tonight (gotta practice myself occasionally!) but everything I heard by Kantorow was mind-bogglingly good, refined, communicative; full of both finesse and power. Especially astonishing considering how massive those two concertos are, but he seems to have owned them. Must go back and listen to all of this properly soon.

You know, I had a bit of a funny feeling about Kantorow early on, that he would be the Lucas Debargue "dark horse" of this competition.

Yikes, this situation is just getting worse and worse.

I thought it was the same announcer today as it was during the entire competition but I might be wrong?

I'm really impressed by Emelyanov. Having heard Prokofiev 3 so many times, he reminded me of what I saw in the piece thirty or so years ago. That is the highest praise I can give to any musician.

I just heard Kantarow. From the first note of the Tchaikovsky, he sounded extraordinary.

This Tchaik is not Mao's best performance imo.
