SIPCA 11 – Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia – a snippet

I have been listening to the Mozart concerti on the radio while settling an affidavit and enormous bundle of exhibited documents.

I can’t say I have been able to give them my full concentration, and unfortunately, I missed all of Ran Dank’s performance of K466.

I say unfortunately because, for what it is worth, Marion Arnold, one of the ABC announcers, let slip that one player has spoken to her (metaphorically, I mean) in this competition in a way in which no other player has spoken in the many previous Sydney International Piano Competitions for which she has been the announcer.

Marion tried to cover her tracks (as she said, it isn’t her place to express such opinions) but in the context I would say she was talking about Ran Dank, whose concerto performance Gerard had recapitulatively praised immediately before she embarked on this revelation.
