In the second round!

In the second round!

I’ve just advanced to round two of the Anton Rubinstein piano competition.
It’s at the Hochschüle für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden, Germany.
Semifinal music to be recreated:

  • Liszt: Première Année de Pèlerinage – 1. Chapelle de Guillaume Tell
  • Beethoven: “The Hunt” Sonata No. 18 in E-flat Major, Op. 31 No. 3
  • Carl Tausig: Concert Étude No. 2 in A-flat Major, Op. 1b
  • Liszt: Première Année de Pèlerinage – 5. Orage
  • Rubinstein: 6 Soirées à Saint-Petersburg, Op.44 – 1. Romance in E-flat Major
  • Rachmaninoff: Piano Sonata No. 2 in B-flat Minor, Op. 36 (Revised Version)

What I played in my first round:

  • Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I – Prelude & Fugue XV in G Major
  • Mozart: Fantasy No. 2 in C Minor, K. 396
  • Liszt: Trois Études de Concert – 3. Un Sospiro (D-flat Major)
  • Rachmaninoff: Etude-Tableaux, Op. 39: 1. Allegro agitato (C Minor)

Too bad only the orchestra rounds will be recorded! Not enough manpower, it seems. “NOT ENOUGH PYLONS.”
