Grand Piano Competition is beginning soon. Today I recall the first competition which took place two years ago. I was very excited to take photos there.
It was a difficult work for the young participants. And an enjoyment for listeners. Besides concerts, I was at the master-classes. And I had the possibility keep watch over the work of great musicians. I may say that I practically lived in the conservatory then. Despite the fatigue, I was enjoying what was happening. I could look at emotions of people, my friends. It was very interesting for me.
I met new friends then. And they met me. Many thanks to Denis Matsuev for this magnificent idea. Looking very forward to the second Grand Piano Competition from April 29 to May 5.
