For those interested, 2 years ago was posted the full concerto 1 version of Argerich at the Chopin competition in 1965. An outstanding version with a wonderful phrasing. The romance is a demonstration of refinement. And the vivace is .... passionate, virtuoso yet well articulated.

Re: Bruce Liu

Just found out about this

https://www.instagram.com/p/B3wM2i2gEBe/

He was born in Paris. His parents were divorced and his father took him to Montreal when he was four.

BTW, Tony Yike Yang's instagram have many reunion pictures if you are interested.

Thank you, rach3master. I see scores for Stages I, II, and III. Maybe they'll release the Final round also later?

Yes, many participants have an Instagram account and some have posted more than others on their Warsaw experience. Miyu Shindo did a 45-min Q&A session with Kai-Min Chang and it's still available on her IG account.

Reading the explanation, my interpretation is that the scorecards from the final round were so close they just discarded them in favor of another form of voting, so perhaps the original scores will not be published.

^ Thanks - I went back to the article and read it again and I think you might be right.

All the same, it was interesting to see in the score sheets how Bruce Liu was the clear leader throughout all 3 early stages (even though I believe the voting of the first two stages were anonymous).

Yes, in addition he was the only player who all of the judges voted to pass across all 3 stages, so it seems only fair to give him the gold based purely on these scores.

Wow, interesting reading the scorecards. As expected, most of the pedagogical jurors voted down the interesting players. Regarding changing the rules in the Concerto round, that allegedly happened in 2010 with Bozhanov.

I aggregated the points and Yes-index values for all finalists and sorted by the sum of points, just out of curioisity how the scoreboard looked arithmetically after Stage 3, with no final to account.

It does seem Bruce was a clear winner from the start.

Yes, the disparity is crazy, none of the other participants seem to have gotten a 23. Is the maximum possible 25?

As the substitute juror Arthur Moreira Lima gave Bruce Liu the top score 25 in every round. The only Juror to do so. He placed 2nd in the 7th competition (after Martha Argerich).

Also Bruce has 4 stops in South America in the up coming world tour.

Bruce Liu interviewed by Taiwan radio station (in Mandarin)

https://www.family977.com.tw/index....il_song&choice_program_song_id=25788

In the first 20 minutes
- His father is a painter, but feels like his brother and never forces him to do anything
- Piano is his hobby, that's the way he was able to keep it fresh. He never feel the pressure to win or achieve anything.
- He doesn't like to record and listen to his own recording, but was forced to do it because of COVID (in order to show it to his teacher)
- He only played Fazioli once before and chose it by instinct (and actually found it a little hard to control)
- He likes athletics and swims every day
