  1. most competitions are ‘irregular’….

  2. oo, do you have more links?

  3. There are some YouTube videos of him playing various pieces. He seems to be an expressive player.

  4. The winner was white, male, Russian, and has no political voice.
    The competition is clearly fixed. Commence the outrage!!

  5. The pianist – Sergei Redkin is brilliant and a student of the wonderful Professor Alexander Sandler. A name that deserves far more mention than given. Redkin is a winner of numerous competitions as are most students of Sandler.
