You have a picture of Danbi Um as one of the contestants, however, she is not competing in this edition of the competition. Same thing with Nikki Chooi!

Both Danbi and Nikki did indeed win spots as participants but apparently won't be playing. Kudos to them in any case, and best luck to all participants who will play in the preliminaries on Sunday!

Is it always a 3 to 1 ratio of women to men?

Just asking.

From John A

Generally yes, the woman outnumber the men in these competitions but it's not planned that way.

Btw, quite a few seem to be taking a lot of liberty with things like Bach and such, so much so that I was wildly confused by one players Bach interpretation since both the rhythms and the printed notes vs what they played were way out in left field. >.<

Brilliant presentation of picture and sound. I even managed to sort out the G Streamer .
There is an odd niggle about the picture . So many parts of the piano are precisely level that the picture lines keep joggling reflections up and down.
I wonder if they could just push one end of the piano back about two inches . Great production all round . Some wonderful musicians .
I notice they spell Perfomance the California way in the list of players.

Any favorites so far?

We need photos showing the shoulder rests . Lets have it all out in the open . The Indianapolis Shoulder Rest Competition .
Lots of concentration needed to work through all the contestants. Apart from the music I am definitely becoming sensitised or allergic to too much movement .Gyrations,sidesteps and sudden bends and twists are getting on my wick .Each new variation is a distraction taking attention off the music.
