4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilled by Zhang and Son's performances., January 31, 2012
This review is from: A Surprise in Texas (DVD)
While I was very impressed by the blind pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii who'd won the gold medal, I was actually more excited by the performances of the co-gold medalist Haochen Zhang and silver medalist Yeol Eum Son. Tsujii's performaces were great but his repertoire was a bit too typical to my taste. The "wow" moments for me were when Zhang played Stravinsky's "Petrushka" and Son did Liszt's "Rhapsodie Espagnole." Their technique, rhythmic sense, devotion and ceaseless passion made me so thrilled and mesmerized. I definitely saw a great potential in them. After watching this DVD, I wished more performances in full length had been featured to better understand and appreciate the pianists. And I hope I could see all the three medalists grow and stand on top.
