Karolina Nadolska, whom many saw as Poland’s front-player in this autumn’s Chopin Competition, has been forced to withdraw.
She tells Slipped Disc: ‘ I have a problem with right hand… I was supposed to play on the 17th but couldn’t move my fingers. The organizers proposed me to try today but my hand is still in bad condition. Well… It is a bit better but still not good enough to play 3 Etudes.. That is why I had to resign…’
Karolina, 30, came second in the 2011 All-Poland Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition [redacted] in Warsaw and was expected to fly the Polish flag high again this year. We wish her a swift recovery.
