Dutchman Hannes Minnaar in pianofinal Elisabethcompetition Brussel

May 22, 2010 at 10:55 PM

From monday 24 may till 29 may the final for piano is held in Brussel. I was on both semi's of the Dutch pianist Hannes Minnaar. Last year I played with him with an amateurorchestra  the 2th piano concerto of Shostakovits. I also saw his conservatory exam (10) with Miriors of Ravel.On Youtube here an old version of Richter:

Here you can see http://www.cmireb.be/en/ the final on internet http://video.cmireb.be/live and here you can see back on video on demand http://video.cmireb.be/vod for example Hannes Minnaar if you fill in his name on candidates and go to 12 may the second half of his performance for Ravel. I could congratulate him at 1.30 and layed in my bed at 3.45, but the next day all finalconcerts seem sold out. That is a pity. So I cannot see him in the final. Last year I could get cards for the monday and tuesday of the violinfinal after the semi's. 2 girls in the final and 7 Asians. Hannes Minnaar is the 4th person from the Netherlands in the final after violinists Theo Olof (4th)+ Kees Kooper (12th) in 1951 and pianist Rian de Waal (7th) in 1983. So it feels like the Netherlands in the EK- or WKfinal with soccer, a rarity.
