Anyways, I'm listening to the Montreal Competition right now. At the moment, JinJoo Cho is in the middle of the prayer movement of Shostakovich.
I like the piece. I've heard it once played by Oistrakh, another time last night when Ms. Kamio played it, and now a third time with Ms. Cho.
I had to get a shower at 7:30, so when I started listening, Elizaveta Shnayder from Russia was in the third movement of Sibelius. From what I heard, she had a few technical issues. I don't know how strong her first and second movements of Sibelius were, though.
