September 3, 2018 at 07:41 PM · It's ridiculous, isn't it? These are live performances of either public domain works or a work written especially for this competition. Youtube and Facebook's systems for classical music clearly are broken. They block things like this, but then they allow people to post cell phone-recorded performances of concerts that are done completely without permission. I'm working the video of Chang Yu Ting's performance from the competition and will post when available!
