About What Makes It Great:
As you can imagine, musicians that are selected to compete in the Cleveland International Piano Competition are among the best in the world. Because they are all outstanding artists, there are measures that jurors in a music competition use to rank contestants to determine a winner. President of Piano Cleveland and 2007 CIPC medalist Yaron Kohlberg will give you an insider’s view on what makes some playing rise above the rest. From technique and touch to interpretation, Yaron will take you through all the elements that make piano playing go from good to great.
