An Italian wins big Bonn Beethoven contest

The Italian pianist Alberto Ferro was named winner of  the International Telekom Beethoven Competition in Bonn.

Ferro, 21, takes home 30,000 Euros.


Second was Tomoki Kitamura (Japan). Third was the Korean Ho Jeong Lee,

The chamber music prize was awarded to Ashok Gupta of the UK.

In contrast to past competitions, none of the winners appear, on first sight, to be students of the competition’s founder and jury chairman, Pavel Gililov.
