I have been 3 times to the 1st round to hear the Paganini Caprices + the 1st movement of the violin concerto of Schumann, 3 times to the semi's and will go 1 time to the final. The violin concerto was free to choose, but the only rarity I found in the Competitionbook was the violin concerto of Walton, but that person did not play in the final. 2 times the 1st Paganini (why not the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th? of Paganini), but too much safe choices, so the final will be less interesting than the semi's, where specially Stefan Terara had the best program, with a rare piece of Paganini and a solopiece of Bartok. But he is not in the final because his Mozart was not perfect enough in this field of extreme good players.
Recital Stefan Terara
Béla Bartók : Tempo di ciaccona (Sonata for solo violin in G minor op. 115 Sz. 117)
Victor Kissine : Caprice
Eugène Ysaÿe : Sonata in D minor op. 27/3 Ballade
Massimo Lauricella : Kairòs for solo violin
Nicolò Paganini : Introduction and variations on "Nel cor più non mi sento" from Paisiello's "La molinara"
Also this violinist plays a "rarity", Nigun of Bloch:
A lot candidates were sniffing and breathing loud (you even hear that on cd's although you did not need much air to play violin compared to rowing of cycle racing) and make faces and grimaces and also make a lot of moves with the violin (dancing with the violin) during playing instead of holding the violin in 1 position on the shoulder with a fixed hull and standing on 2 fixed feet. Also 1 girl stamps hard several times with her right foot in the semi's and she is also in the final,
There were a lot of broken bowhairs during the powerplaying and Maria Milstein hit her bridge hard after 8.22 minutes during her recital with the lower part of her bow .
First I thought her eing was broken, but she could play on with a bridge which was not on the same place.
