  • The winner was white, male, Russian, and has no political voice.

    The competition is clearly fixed. Commence the outrage!!

  • The pianist – Sergei Redkin is brilliant and a student of the wonderful Professor Alexander Sandler. A name that deserves far more mention than given. Redkin is a winner of numerous competitions as are most students of Sandler.
