  • Very sorry that English pianist Ashley Fripp didn’t make the final six. Having heard him win the Guildhall Gold and most recently, do marvels with Pictures in a City church, I think he is a major talent, modest and unassuming too.
    Maybe he needs to change his name to Fripporenko or suchlike
