  • Bruce says:

    Great, but not actually news 🙂

  • Pavel says:

    Three out of 6 finalists are students of jury members. But unlike QE & other competitions the judgement was pretty fair till now. The judgment was even better in Sendai violin competition up to this point…just fair!

  • FreddyNYC says:

    Not to be cynical but most of these ladies will probably wind up as assistant concertmasters of a top 5 in a few short years……
