For sports fans, not music lovers
Joseph Harris | Kaysville, UT United States | 10/27/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is the story of the contestants, not the music, in the 6th van Cliburn Piano Competition in Dallas. The show relentlessly pursues the question of who is going to win the grand prize. This production is 90% talk and 10% music. Except for the three movements from three works played by the winner at the end, all pieces consist of approximately 15 seconds of piano playing. None are identified.

The producer of the show seems to have thought that any amount of piano playing would bore the audience, and instead concentrated on the process of competition.

An alternate title for this disk would be "Piano Competition for People Who Hate the Classics.""
