      Well, let’s not push the myth that winning the Rubinstein prize automatically guarantees a major career. When is the last time you heard a Gregory Allen performance?

    I wish this and ALL other competitions just cease to exist, corona or not. All, except for very young kids (ages 6-12). An the awards would be public concerts ONLY!

    A very overrated pianist (Rubinstein, that is).
