I've been reflecting more on the different performers. I've come to understand how Liu ended up with the top spot.

Maybe I'm different than most, but I personally look for purity in playing first, making it the foundation for the interpretation. So minimal errors and superior fingerwork. For that reason, I personally favored Kuszlik over the rest and Sorita just behind him. I guess Kuszlik's noticeably smooth, polished playing was recognized, and got him 4th place and special prizes. But it is the "Chopin" competition, not a competition to see who would make the best piano professor. I guess I see now the balance that Liu has in his playing both interpretively and technically.

Only for Bruce Liu's fans :-)

More footage (captured from the live stream I presume) than the official Chopin Institute videos on YT

BTW. if you still care, the above Chinese website has all the competition videos many of them with interesting viewers comments (including embedded real-times ones). I think they have more professional level comments there compared to YT and you can get a different perspective.

(You can translate the web page into a different language.)
