Ilya Kaler at the 1985 Tchaikovsky Competition
Here's a wonderful opportunity to see as well as hear Ilya Kaler play the Sibelius Concerto. Sure, he was quite young at the time, and he has continued to grow as a musician since winning the Sibelius and Paganini competitions, as well as this 1985 Tchaikovsky Competition. While I'm practicing, I find myself thinking about how his left hand looks. I thought it would be a nice image to share.
