October 23, 2016 at 03:21 PM · Giambattista or Gianbattista is a sort of nickname for Giovanni Battista so indeed same person.

"Polish media are suggesting that the result marks a severe blow for Bron’s influence in the competition industry."

About time.

October 23, 2016 at 06:39 PM · At just 20 years old she is indeed wonderful, one of those few amazing players that have everything needed for a brilliant career, and we are fortunate to be able to listen to her. Bravo!

October 23, 2016 at 07:02 PM · This is the performance Bron had a problem with. Why? A very thought out interpretation reflecting the time and circumstances when it was composed. Very moving. What a great artist.

October 24, 2016 at 11:47 AM · If Bron is going to behave that way and insult his fellow jurors then maybe he shouldn't be invited to participate in juries any more. Surely there are enough great players and pedagogues to fill the void.

October 27, 2016 at 07:01 AM · Anybody doesk now Who were the jury members?

October 27, 2016 at 06:26 PM · See above for the jury members, I'll republish here: Maxim Vengerov (Chair), Vera Tsu Wei-Ling, Mayumi Seiler, Marios Papadopoulos, Konstanty Andrzej Kulka, Robert Kabara, Ilya Gringolts, Bartosz Bryla, Zakhar Bron, Alena Baeva, Kyoko Takezawa, Dong-Suk Kang, Akiko Tatsumi, Peter Zazofsky and Krzysztof Penderecki.
