Five Russians Make It into Chopin Competition Final


18.10.2010

Five Russian pianists have entered the final of the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Voice of Russia reports.

Both the critics and the jury members mark the high level of the Russian piano school.

In particular they distinguish Daniil Trifonov whom they call "a mystic of piano" and 18 year old Nikolai Khozyainov, whose interpretation of Chopin music is unusually deep for his age.

In total 80 pianists from different countries are taking part in the contest. The International Chopin Piano Competition is a prestigious piano competition held in honor of great Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin.

The Russian’s name was Nikolai, and he was notable for his education: he was well versed in literature and music. Nikolai shared what winter was like in Russia and about beauty of its nature. Those stories spread a fairy tale sensation - this is how children perceive a narrative of a journey to faraway lands. Perhaps that was the time when the boy got a forefeeling in his soul that his whole subsequent life would be connected with Russia.
