Curtis grad wins Geza Anda contest

The American pianist Claire Huangci, 27, won the triennial Zurich competition last night.

She lists Eleanor Sokoloff and Gary Graffman at the Curtis Institute and Arie Vardi in Hanover as her teachers.

None of these was on the jury.

Well done, Claire.

  • I especially enjoyed Ms. Huangci’s performance of the Mozart C minor concerto very much. She is certainly deserving of the prize.

    My favorite of all the competitors, Yeon-Min Park, did not make it to the finals. She played a very strong 2nd round recital, though:

    Unfortunately, it seems that a YouTube copyright troll has blocked her Mozart performance in Switzerland and probably elsewhere.
