ARD needs rethink after no first prize at bassoon finalmain
In a low-key year, the second basson prize was shared between the Italian Andrea Cellacchi, 22, and local favourite Mathis Stier 25.
This could be a moment for ARD to reconsider its workings. All finalists so far in all disciplines have been male.
The last of the sections, percussion, was win last night by an Austrian, Kai Strobel.
