During the year of the Olympics, talented young pianists from all over the world come to Sydney to take part in one of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world: the Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia.
The year 2000 was no exception. Pianists came from Russia, England, Germany, France, Italy, as well as various parts of Australia played through a dazzling range of repertoire. The six finalists were accompanied by the Australian Chamber Orchestra (conducted by Christopher Hogwood) and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Memorable performances from the solo rounds include Ayoko Uehara's brilliant 'Feux Follets' and the Shoatkovich First Piano Sonata, and Marina Kolomiitseva's enthralling 'Paganini Etudes' by Liszt.
