The competition, one of the most distinguished, had very little media coverage this year outside of Belgium and the online profile was exceptionally thin.
The results, announced after midnight, are:
First Prize : Lukas Vondracek (Cz)
Second Prize : Henry Kramer (US)
Third Prize : Alexander Beyer (US)
Fourth Prize : Chi Ho Han (S Korea)
Fifth Prize : Aljosa Jurinic (Croatia)
Sixth Prize : Alberto Ferro (Italy)
The audience prize went to the pianist placed sixth, which suggests a considerable gulf between the judges’ markings and the public perception.
