Meet the Quarterfinalists: Dominic Muzzi performs Bacewicz
Today is the final episode of the Honens @ Home: Meet the Quarterfinalists series. In this episode, we meet Dominic Muzzi. Dominic is no stranger to winning competitions—he started winning when he was only a teenager. He is currently enrolled in the doctoral program at Indiana University, where his teacher, 2003 Honens Laureate Roberto Plano, might have put the Honens bug in his ear.
In this video, Dominic shares the third movement, Vivo, from Grażyna Bacewicz's Piano Sonata No. 2.
