Gonna start writing about semi-final day!!!
One of my friend was a semi-finalist!
We heard semifinalists' perform and after that, we waited for announce and had masterclasses.
I couldn't hear all of semifinalists' perform.
However, I think all of them were so great(that's why they're semifinalists!), and some pieces are new for me.
Some players choose "KuKu", composed by Cockcrost.
I knew this piece, but it's just only the name.
So this was very first time to hear it. So great piece, I think!!
Have you ever heard it?
And all of semifinalists have different character.
I think Japanese players tend to play similar, of course each players have different character, but it is so closer than US players.
It is kind of interesting points between US and Japan... Don't you think so?
After all of semifinalists performed, announced the result. Congrats, all of finalists and great job, for all of semifinalists!!!=)
This day, we had 2 masterclasses. Mr Lulloff and Mr Delangle!!!
One of my friend played Villa-Lobos!! He did great job with his soprano and all of students are awesome:)
Mr Lulloff is explaining...
Mr Delangle's masterclass.
After this masterclass, we had talk session.
I asked Mr Delangle about how I can improve my tonguing skill.
