The Leeds International Piano Competition was founded by Dame Fanny Waterman in 1961 to find the finest pianists from around the world. Held every three years, the competition has a strong reputation for kick-starting the careers of some of the world's best pianists, including Murray Perahia, András Schiff, Mitsuko Uchida and Lars Vogt. Kathryn Stott and Benjamin Frith join Petroc Trelawny to discuss the competition so far and offer highlights from the semi-final recitals stage. Six musicians remain in the competition for the concerto finals, which will take place on Friday and Saturday.
