IV Concorso Internazionale di Esecuzione Musicale "Clara Wieck Schumann"

Massa is near to Pisa and Firenze. Whether my plane arrived at Bologna instead of Firenze, I did not being late to play in Massa.

No methods to accustom myself to waiting for the competition results announcement after my turn (performance). I was behind the tall clarinettist to wait for my result announcement as well as the others. But, how miraculous competition I've ever seen ! I, a clarinettist soloist and a wind piano quartett became Primo Premio Assoluto winners in the morning sun shone. After the announcement of my Primo Premio Assoluto 100 / 100 by a gentle voice at last and the detailled instruction for our Competition Winners Concert (Concerto dei Vincitori), nobody stopped long and radiant applause in Aula Magna of Liceo Artistico e Musicale Felice Palma of Massa until noon.

In this competition, Primo Premio Assoluto winners should perform the extract of the competition program also at Competition Winners Concert (Evening Concert) in the same evening of the competition, in order to receive the wun Prizes definitively and finally. There, I was happy to be announced also to play, so that made me did not have to feel my fatigues until the end of the evening concert, yet. Here's the program of the concert ;

It was just after winning, I had been demanded "Congrats for your 7th winning ! Then, go to win your 8th First Prize !!!" immediately with great joy and determination. Yes, I want to win more, of course. During the competition, the result reports are always announced by regional radio news program when I go to the restaurant. This time, I greatly rejoiced that my competition winning had been repeatedly announced with my name ; Naoko Matsui alias Alucard De Lucia.

It was the first time that the sudden and big applause stopped me at the center of the 3rd Mvt. (Rondo) by Violin Concerto No. 1 by Niccolò Paganini during Winners Concert. There, Accompanist M. Alexei Yaropolov smiled me to continue as usual until the last note. His accompaniments were sure and I could perform with much less fatigues during both the competition and the concert. Fortunately, the bigger and longer applause came to me after finishing the last note. And I, the aforesaid clarinettist and the wind piano quartett could shake hands each other and say simply "Complimenti !" "Mille grazie !" each other after the concert, finally. 

On the next day of the competition and the winners concert, I had been celebrated warmly in a clean and fashionable restaurant. Even there, further planning for more concerts and their preparations were never forgotten but it was also enjoyable. After returning in Hamburg at yesterday, the newest career developing as a violinist or an violinistic aim had been suggested. Once it really surprised me by their concepts which are ultra-persuasive however, I agreed with them after their instructions. And my recent recordings monopolized #1 - #3 in Top 100 N1M Charts again this week. Here are the links to listen or watch them ;
