Tchaikovsky violin prize is won by judge’s petmain
Professor Boris Kushnir’s pupil Sergei Dogadin won first prize in the violin section of the Tchaikovsky Competition, as he has done in every contest where his teacher was on the jury.
Second was Marc Bouchkov, third was the Korean Donghyun Kim.
The jury was chaired by Verbier chief Martin Engstroem.
The contest has lost any semblance of credibility.
