The first prize at the Geneva International Piano Competition was divided last night between Théo Fouchenneret, 24, of France

and the Russian Dmitry Shishkin, 26.

The Thai finalist came third.

The judging was clean.

    Another meaningless competition .To note that the
    judging was clean is equally meaningless.

  • Bruce says:

    And we know the judging was clean because…?

  • Netneutral says:

    Actually judging may not have been clean. Fouchenneret’s teacher was on the jury, and she was allowed to vote for him.
