Five Russians Make It into Chopin Competition Final


18.10.2010

Five Russian pianists have entered the final of the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Voice of Russia reports.

Both the critics and the jury members mark the high level of the Russian piano school.

In particular they distinguish Daniil Trifonov whom they call "a mystic of piano" and 18 year old Nikolai Khozyainov, whose interpretation of Chopin music is unusually deep for his age.

In total 80 pianists from different countries are taking part in the contest. The International Chopin Piano Competition is a prestigious piano competition held in honor of great Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin.
