The Russian pianist Mikhail Bouzine took first prize at the international piano competition at Orléans, in a final that was seen only on-line after France entered new Covid restrictions. He took home 12,000 Euros and two subsidiary prizes.

Second was Dmitry Batalov, 3rd was Chae-um Kim.



  • Boulez says:

    Finally! He is the greatest interpreter of contemporary music in Russia. And he is world-class! Very well deserved!!

    Bouzine is a remarkable artist! The online performances are miracles! Congratulations to him and to the Orléans competition jury for recognizing this really excellent pianist.
