6/19 Beethoven Highlights from the 20th New Orleans International Piano Competition.

:  "Spencer Myer, a native of North Ridgeville, won first prize Sunday in the New Orleans International Piano Competition. He is shown here accepting the audience's applause after performing with the Cleveland Orchestra in the finals of the 2005 Cleveland International Piano Competition, in which he won fourth prize."
More piano music today featuring Beethoven highlights from the 2008 20th Annual New Orleans International Piano Competition.  Each of these videos features a (longish) infomercial by the sponsor (Hall Piano Company), followed by a Beethoven piece and some other works in the performance recital.  I put links below to go directly to the Beethoven sonatas, but the other works are also well worth checking out.
