The Competition’s brilliant programs

I don’t have access yet to the press pool photography, but here’s a crude photograph of my favorite page in the thick program book.  Instead of boring head shots of every performer, the Chopin Competition has employed a team of photographers who have been following the entrants since the preliminary round in April and I think it’s brilliant!

Here’s an example: this is 18 year old finalist Nikolay Khozyainov as seen through the lens of one of these photographers.  We could have been shown a picture of him next to the piano; instead, we see a young kid forced into the spotlight (even if just for a few minutes).
