    oooh Rachmaninov...I like his 'Variations on a Theme by Paganini'.
    I saw a girl on TV last night playing something by Rachmaninov and she had really short stumpy fingers! I thought Rachmaninov's compositions were notorious for needing long fingers to play them....

    Rach's harmonies are what makes Rach Rach! Yes, the pieces are notorious for needing huge hands; but these little pianists get away with it somehow! Granted, P.C. No. 2 is fantastically evocative, but I think that 3 transcends all of them.

    Good Rach piece to play is Prelude in C# minor, op3, no.2. Most is quite easy, agitato part and finale (mega chords!) a little tricky though.

    The clarinettist won! I though all of them deserved to win to be honest, though perhaps not the guitarist quite as much.

    I thought the guitarist was really good but didn't choose a piece to best show off his skills. Glad the clarinettist won.

    That Saint-Saëns concerto played by the pianist was a wonderful piece. (although she could have played it better) I need to look into more of his music
