The first loser at the Chopin Competition is…. Faziolimain
The Warsaw contest is well under weigh and the organisers have published the list of pianos that contestants have chosen to play. Apparently, they are given 15 minutes to decide.
Most picked a Yamaha or a Steinway.
Next came Kawai.
Only one contestant chose a Fazioli.
And not a Bechstein, Bösendorfer or Pleyel in sight.
