The Final Four At The SAIPC, And The Winner Is...

Mar 22, 2013

The four finalists are doing all they can to impress the judges and make their mark on this special occasion. There is the award-winning performance of the commissioned work "Upsparkles" by the Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Moravec.

Russian mystic Alexander Scriabin breaks free from 'sonata-form' with his "Sonata Fantasy in g minor."

Claude Debussy cuts loose from the forms he used in his first set of preludes when one of the contestants plays four of the twelve works from his second set from 1913.

The music ends with a wild and dynamic performance of Rachmaninoff's original version of his "Piano Sonata No. 2" in one of the composer's favorite keys, B-flat minor.

The Piano wraps up our coverage of the 2012 San Antonio International Piano Competition this Sunday at 5 p.m. At the end of the program find out who won what at the 2012 SAIPC.
