International Horowitz competition 2011
Although most of the participants in the ninth Horowitz competition came from the Ukraine, the top three prizes in the Junior category went to China: Bolai Cao (1st prize), Tian Yuan Liu (2nd prize) and Wang Yinuo (3rd prize). The top-class panel of judges chaired by Valeriy Kozlov (Ukraine) comprised Valida Rassoulova-Suk (USA), Graham Scott (Great Britain), Barbara Szczepanska (Germany) and Lev Shugom (Russian Federation). Barbara Szczepanska, a professor at the Robert Schumann School of Music and Media where she also runs the “Schumann Junior” centre for highly gifted students, praised the “very high standard” of the competition.
