    Considering Bartok thought competitions were appropriate only for horses, this is an insult to his memory. Shame on them for using his name!

  • Terence says:

    Congratulations and a good prize.

    I was playing Bartok on piano today but definitely wouldn’t get 30,000€.

    Someone might give me 3€ to stop playing and go away …

  • Cyril says:

    That’s a lot of Adams among the winners.

  • Paul Brownsey says:

    Any relation to the pianist Balasz Szokolay?

  • Paul Carlile says:

    Adam good result, by the look of it.
