Performed in the 3rd Round of the Chopin Competition 2010
Great technique, great artistry, and intelligent musical sense but absolutely nothing special to mark her from the rest of the pack… I would’ve given her 3rd prize.
@lflagr Name some, and their competitions.
@ungava100 What are you talking about? Asian women are winning plenty of competitions around the world. And in any case, winning competitions does not neccessarily guarantee a successful solo career anyway–Mitsuko Uchida, for example, placed 2nd in this competition way back when. Hasn’t seemed to stop her.
very natural indeed
@Deliverant there couldn’t have been a more inadequate comment.. nevertheless i have to say your completely right ;D
@kuranosuke1968 Hmmm, I wonder if you would still feel the same way if you listened to this blindfolded. This is a great performance and doesn’t sound “feminine” at all!
A+ for not wearing a stupid girly dress
Thank God the judges got Avdeeva placed correctly. Now maybe male chauvinist types will finally give Asian women competitors what they have earned.
Her performance is very splendid, but cannot wipe out a feeling of feminine performance. I think that her performance does not come true for a performance of the Yundei Li. I think that it is impossible for her to become a world-famous pianist. This is not a wicked opinion.
@heyagakurai I will never forget Yundi li’s 2000 performance.
She captured the character in this sonata.
Passionate, Agitato, Molto Cantabile, Cantabile.……you can hear all of it in the most natural way.
Young pianists and old should listen to this and learn how she moves naturally from one picture to another. Fascinating.
She is really original with great technique. Again good result of competition!
Very interesting performance. Extremely bold and risky for sure, but I think it works and captures my attention throughout without being cheesy or insincere. It’s definitely not the Chopin I’ve always known. I guess personally I would prefer a more “standard version” on the long run, but I’d definitely pay to see her perform!
very nice, I like…
@Deliverant LOL you came here to see her ass?
Nice Ass !!
I’ve been listening to her play this sonata almost every single day for the past month.… I love it!!!
she looks like Chopin lol
@chopinpa Anatolel Leikin makes a very convincing case AGAINST taking the repeat from Grave. He says there is no unifying practice concerning the print of repeat sign in the 19th century. Many pieces without a repeat sign make it impossible to start from the introduction again. For those who are interested, read his article “Repeat with caution: A Dilemma of the First Movement of Chopin’s Sonata op. 35. “The Musical Quarterly, vol. 85 no. 3 (2001): 568 — 82.” Personally, I agree with him
@lepiffou But it wasn’t Zimmerman who awarded Avdieeva the special prize for performing Sonata. He only funded this award!
taking the repeat at the beginning of Doppio movimiento is harmonically a horrible idea. the last chord of the exposition is arguably A-flat, so it makes more sense to resolve to D-flat
@Sewerynaable: indeed Zimerman himself stated that he detests competition as a form of musical selection, so the last thing he would do is serve on jury
…NOT attractive. personally.
