As inexorably as the Olympic games, every four years the major, international piano competitions in Moscow and Fort Worth process the arts-in-progress of credentialed keyboard careerists, subject them to a harassing scrutiny and spit out winners and losers. Books have been written about the unfairness of these competitions and their negative effects on music today and piano playing in the future. Still they continue, and the public watches in fascination. And flocks to hear the victors.

When Simone Pedroni played Rachmaninoff's Second Concerto at the Ninth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition here recently, he saw red. And a lot of blue. "I see music in colors," Pedroni said in an interview just hours before learning he had won the prestigious gold medal. "The Rachmaninoff has two symbols, bells and water. The water is blue. A sensation of death pervades the work. It's very tragic, very sad." Colors. Sensations. Flights of fantasy.

Five years ago, just as his career was taking off, Mark Westcott broke his arm in a household accident and was paralyzed for almost a year. Now 45, he is attempting a comeback. Russian-born Jura Margulis, 25, says at his age things change fast. Last year his schedule was empty, but then in October he gave eight recitals in Europe. With his father soon to become a professor of piano at UCLA, the younger Margulis is setting his sights on America.
