The 2020 Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, due in August, has been put off to next year.

China may be getting back to normal, but judges and contestants may be unable to travel from around the world.

The competition says it will not accept new applicants, but though those who have already applied will be given extra time to submit their video uploads.

    To be honest I am not very disappointed as this is one of the most crooked competitions in music history
