Just in: Korean wins Cliburnmain
After a competition unmarked by incident and widely unreported, the Van Cliburn winner, announced last night, was Yekwon Sunwoo, 28, of South Korea.
Second and third were Americans – Kenneth Broberg, 23, and Daniel Hsu, 19.
The audience award, in which 20,000 website visitors and medici.tv watchers had a right to vote, was won by the only woman in the finals, Rachel Cheung.
The jury chair, Leonard Slatkin, is expected to share his personal impressions with us shortly.
