Listen live to the Oistrakh competition!

October 6, 2010 20:01

Hi, a member of an Oistrakh net group posted a wonderful link


where one can listen to the 2010 Oistrakh competition! 

And... Baranov straight from Indianopolis is playing.  Did he learn from Indianopolis? I can't tell but...his 2nd round was bullet solid.  He's chosen as a finalist. Backed up by a super mega resonating hall.  I don't know of what is made their halls but I always remember the Oistrakh competition as one where the accoustics are very resonant (where all the players seem to play twice their sound!)  Also, I noticed that a higher proportion of the participants are from russia and eastern countries than in some other competitions dominated by asians (even competitions out of asia). Thus, perhaps a great occasion to discover young talents of these countries!

My prediction (but it's just my amateur's predictions to take with a grain of salt)? (and I admit I didn't had time to listen to all... )  Probably Baranov since he has much competition experience and arrived already "warmed up" or "in the mood"  by the Indianopolis. + he's home...

But we'll see...

Have a nice day,
