If you love virtuosic piano-playing, then the Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia is something you may want to listen to, or , if you are in Sydney, attend.
Thirty-six young adults, ranging in age from 17 to 30 & from many countries, today begin the rigours of the competition. For twenty-seven of them, it began badly even before they had arrived in Australia, as many international flights were severely delayed.
Competitors can choose to play either a Steinway, Kawai or Yamaha piano, and it can all be heard live on ABC CLassic FM.
