The absence of Dmitri Bashkirov, Chairman of the Jury, from the chamber music finals at the beginning of the performance by Jiyoung Kim will not affect the Jury’s voting in the final round. After the performance, Mr Bashkirov listened to a recording of the movements in question. The Competition Committee considers that Mr Bashkirov is thus competent to form an overall picture of the performance.
Jury’s voting in the Final Round
In the Orchestral Finals the contestants will perform a piano concerto with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Anna-Maria Helsing.
The jury selected the finalists on Friday evening after the second round.
