3 men, 3 women are through to conducting finalsNews
The Malko Competition has maintained perfect gender equality in its final round, assuring us that this outcome is a complete coincidence.
The finalists are:
Katharina Wincor, Austria
Dmitry Matvienko, Belarus
Joel Sandelson, England
Anton Holmer, Sweden
Chloé Dufresne, France
Linhan Cui, China
Sandelson is also a finalist in the concurrent Rotterdam Conducting Comeptition.
This is very good training for a conductor, being with two orchestras at the same time.
Sandelson (pictured) is Conducting Fellow at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and assistant conductor at BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
