Judges Quotes about Vlad’s performance:

“Lovely phrasing, 3-voice texture well-balanced – singing melody and bass line are present, lovely shaping. Very maturely understood and performed!”


Judges Quotes about Roman’s performance:

“You play this Waltz with style and lilt. The character of the dance comes through beautifully – you show flexibility in the pulse with a lovely emphasis on the downbeat. Beautiful contrasts in color when the left hand has the melody. Also, nice singing bass line. The coda has flair and a sense of bravura. You are a fine pianist and a real showman! Congratulations.“

Your rhythmic syncopations and accompanying passages line up so well. Excellent stage presence and very solid memory. Congratulations to the TEAM!”
