A long late night at the Tchaikovsky competitionmain
They’ve been listening to non-stop music for two days and tonight the judges of piano, violin and cello will have to whittle down eight finalists to five.
No leaks yet, but the American violinist Nigel Armstrong did well to get through his concerto after a cellist keeled over in the orchestra. Both are said to be okay. The cool Nigel showed may even have gained him a couple of extra points.
