[from The Well-Tempered Blog] The Van Cliburn Competition* is being shown via live webcast (yes, it's video! - and yes, the connection can be dodgy). Ah, the wonders of the Internet Age.
* For the record: I enjoy the idea of competitions, though politics always find their way into the judging. The Van Cliburn does tend to promote mediocrity over truly interesting musicians (at least as near as I can gather from the Cliburn documentaries I've seen). But I just can't pass up a good piano orgy, so I'll be streaming whenever it's available.
