In Dublin, half the piano finalists are students of the jurymain
Welcome to Dublin, where the news travels slow.
Exactly half the contestants in the second round of the 11th Dublin International Piano Competition were students of jury members, according to our mole in the aisles.
In the semi-finals, it was 7 out of 12.
In the finals it is now two out of four.
The jury is chaired by John O’Conor.
We hope he will ensure fair play.
