Re: [Harp-L] Re: [HarpTalk] World Harmonica Festival report

I'm not aware of any from the competition, but there's plenty of Marcin Dyjak on Youtube, most of which I haven't heard yet. (My comments on his playing are only from the competition. Also, I'm not second-guessing the judges, who had a difficult and complex task. My remarks are strictly about my own personal experience.)

To avoid an endless list of categories, the organizers swept divergent styles with different criteria and traditions into single categories: jazz in with melody, and also blues in with folk. A virtuosic jazz performance can often overshadow a simple melody that is played with finesse and refinement. That said, for me personally, Marcin was the most musically satisfying of all the competitors, and I hope to hear more of him.
