    I'm having trouble with the live telecast link this morning:

    "Could not load the media"
    "Try again later"

    Suggestions?

    Just messaged them on FB. Looks like it started working just now whereas before it was just showing archived video from yesterday.

    I need "subscriber access" to read articles/reviews, it seems.

    Where? Please be more direct and specific.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Dallas Morning News have all been free, unless you're trying to view old articles. Just do a Google news search for "cliburn," filtering for last 24 hours if you want the latest, or go to Twitter and search "cliburn," and all the links from all the news sources/blogs that show up should be free.

    There are a number of bloggers writing about the Cliburn and all those links are free.

    Clear out your cookies (or nuke the ones for the FWST and DMN individually) and see if that helps.

    Fei-Fei Dong's Liszt sonata from last night, which everyone's talking about.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSwZTwH0sdc

    Fast forward to the last 6-7 minutes if you don't have time for all 30.

    Jacques Marquis, President and CEO of the Cliburn Foundation, is talking on the live webcast about how the jury will select people to advance to the next round.

    Of the 30 competitors, 12 semifinalists will be announced at 7pm Central time, on the www.cliburn.org webcast.

    It'll be a simple "yes/no" vote - do you want to see this person again? if you were paying for tickets, would you pay to hear him/her again? - and those with the most "yes" votes advance. "Maybe" votes will be used to break ties. It'll be tallied via a simple Excel spreadsheet with little discussion. Jury members who are teaching, or have been associated with, a competitor will not be allowed to vote for that competitor.

    Barring a knockout performance from the final competitor (on deck now), my amateurish rating of the 12 pianists who I'd want to see and hear again, based on a maximum of 5 stars for each of their 2 performances, are:

    9.5 Giuseppe Greco (Italy)
    9.5 Nikolay Khozyainov (Russia)
    9.0 Alessandro Deljavan (Italy)
    9.0 Oleksandr Poliykov (Ukraine)
    8.5 Sean Chen (USA)
    8.5 Claire Huangci (USA)
    8.5 Fei-Fei Dong (China)
    7.5 Luca Buratto (Italy)
    7.5 Alexey Chernov (Russia)
    7.5 Francois Dumont (France)
    7.5 Jayson Gillham (Australia/UK)
    7.5 Alex McDonald (USA)

    To the extent I'm way off, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the following were picked:

    7.0 Sara Daneshpour (USA)
    7.0 Vadym Kholodenko (Ukraine)
    7.0 Nikita Mndoyants (Russia)
    7.0 Beatrice Rana (Italy)
    7.0 Alessandro Taverna (Italy)
    7.0 Jie Yuan (China)

    Got 7 of the 12 right:
    Khozyainov, Deljavan, Huangci, Chen, Dong, Gillham, and Chernov.

    3 more came from my list of alternates:
    Rana, Mndoyants, and Kholodenko.

    2 were a surprise, especially as I couldn't stand them:
    Abrosimov and Takata

    Very surprised Greco and Poliykov didn't make it.

    Wonderful story about Nikita Mndoyants:

    http://www.star-telegram.com/2013/05...titor-and.html

    His solo recital on Saturday afternoon was excellent.
