The winners of the piano category announced
On Friday night we welcomed in the Dvořák´s hall of the Prague Rudolfinum the finalists of the piano category. Today evening was in the spirit of the piano finals. Throughout the evening we could have heard the compositions by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Ludwig van Beethoven.
The contestants gave out all they could on the stage and the jury took long to decide, but there can only be one winner.
The prizes were awarded as follows:
1st prize-Dongha Lee from Republic of Korea
2nd prize-ex aequo Jaeyoung Lee and Matouš Zukal
3rd prize was not awarded
The winner Jaeyoung Lee was also awarded the following prizes: Prize of the City of Prague to the most successful laureate, the Czech Music Fund Foundation Prize for the best performance of the piece commissioned by Jana Vöröšová for the IMC Prague Spring 2021, the Rudolf Firkušný Prize for the best laureate.
The jury awarded Vojtěch Trubač with the honorable mention.
The Gideon Klein foundation prize awarded to the most successful Czech participant in the entire competition went to Matouš Zukal.
Thank you for your sticking with us and we hope that next year we will see you in the hall with us.
