The international competition founded by the famed conducting teacher has ended with a no-win situation.
The first prize was withheld by a Panula-chaired jury.
The second prize was divided betweenn Johannes Zahn (Germany) and Angus Webster (UK). The third prize was shared by Ross Jamie Collins (Finland/UK) and Kaapo Ijas (Finland).
The orchestra’s favourite was Angus Webster.
Here are the finalists looking miserable.
But credit to the jury for their courage.
