The Russian Sergei Dogadin was named winner in Singapore tonight, with a $50,000 prize. He is a pupil of the juror Boris Kuschnir, who also judged when he won the Joachim competition. So it goes.
Second was Chisa Kitagawa, a student of juror Takashi Shimizu.
Third, Oleksandr Korniev, a teaching assistant at YST Conservatory in Singapore and past student of jury president Qian Zhou.
If this was sport, it would be banned.
