I think the OPs point is that the results did not match the actual performances.  But when was the last time that happened?

(And yes, I agree that the spelling errors bothered me, too.  Spelling errors make posts less credible since it shows lack of thought.)

At the Chopin, 2010. It will probably happen next in 2015.

More generally, probably last week.

Geniusas, Trifonov, and Wunder were the best in my opinion. No I'm not a sexist :( I just didn't that Avdeena deserved it!

Wunder played all 4 Chopin ballades at the Wigmore Hall this week and it was broadcast on Radio 3.

How he even got past the first round if he played like that is beyond me.

I'm listening to the Wigmore Hall performance now.  His "Moonlight" is very hesitant, like he doesn't know which bass notes to play so there's this pausing between chord changes.  Very ugly.

His teacher was Adam Harasiewicz. 2010 was the year that the prize-winners studied with the members of the jury. Remember?

Wasn't there an uproar about the winners and how the results were rigged?  I don't think this is the first thread about that competition.

As for Wunder's performance at Wigmore Hall, he played the Ballade No.3 so poorly that it made me want to scream at him.  How can you clip so many chords with poor pedaling and punch out notes like the melody wasn't there?  And the audience, I guess they'd applaud anything.
