Notes & Reviews:

Notwithstanding his lack of experience, in 1972 Cyprien Katsaris decided to take part in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition of Belgium. The only Western European challenger amongst the 12 finalists, the young pianist played Chopin's Polonaise Op. 44, the compulsory Concerto by the Belgian composer Jacques Leduc - which he had to learn in eight days - and Rachmaninov's magisterial Concerto No. 3. The placing of Katsaris in ninth position provoked both phenomenal applause and massive, prolonged booing of the jury unprecedented in the history of the competition!
