She was one of six finalists, all women, five from South Korea, four of whom were students of members of the jury. One judge, Miriam Fried, stood down for the final or was asked to stand downafter half the contestants turned out to be her students. Mr Lebrecht just shone a light on the goings on.

The winner ,a pupil of the jury president!!! Just looking at the make up of the jury it is enough to take ones breathe away. One cannot but think what a clever cottage industry. PT Barnum the circus impresario once made an observation on the human condition….

Did you hear the competition? Regardless who she studied with or who is judging, she played beautifully and was an excellent violinist. By whom? She totally deserves to win! With the relentless piling on of accusations of corruption coming from here and other places, one could just as well argue that the jury felt pressure not to name this young woman the winner, lest they appear to validate the accusations.

That they did so nevertheless must be at least in part evidence that the Violin girl from indys Winner truly regarded her as the best choice. The jury had no place to turn, they had Violin girl from indys Winner continue along the given path or it would have been for everyone a greater disaster than it is now. Lebrecht having raised the question. He has done the violin world a great service and if they take recent events to heart some good will come of this or on the other hand they can hunker down and find more devious ways to continue the game.

Keep in mind that a prize winner in being a student of a certain Mr. All under the sanctimonious blather about serving the art of music. With all due respect, we still have only evidence of correlation and not of causation. You would be silly to think that Jinjoo was undeserving of the win! To find so much reason to distrust some of the most respectable teachers of our time is a waste of energy.

The competition is over and Jinjoo laid it down with a winning performance, we should just be sending our congratulations. Jinjoo may have possibly been the best one, but unfortunately for her the skeptics can easily say that she won because she studies with the president of the jury. Even though he abstained from voting, the other members knew it was his student. There are likely too many politics and favors being done for one another at that competition. His boss, Smirnoff, was the conductor of the final round. Last time Smirnoff was a judge.

Essentially nobody who has studied with a member of the jury within twelve months should be allowed to enter. Jurors are eminently dispensable, and easily replaced — whereas all gifted young people should be given a chance. One can easily see the connections amongst the jury members, such as the fact that the young Cho-Liang Lin recorded his Mozart concerti with Jaime Laredo conducting….

All the relationships are too close for comfort. Having said this the winner is a fantastic violinist. Always has been, even before she began studying with Laredo. Is it really that only the Indianapolis Violin Competition is a competition that has a jury and their students competing? Examining the Enescu cello competition actually reveals that the cello 1st prize winner studied with 2 out of the 4 jury members, not just one.

She is a student of Helmerson and Claret. Is it an oddity or coincidence that in all the announcements of the Romanian press about the cello final before the were announced that her picture was always present? And what about the Enescu violin competition? The 1st prize winner Stefan Tarara is born to Romanian parents.

His picture also prominently appeared in the Romanian press before the final result was announced along with captions that he is Romanian in origin. Of course it could be that the Romanian press was simply excited that a Romanian was doing well in the competition. The fact that Tarara is Romanian in origin is something that was mysteriously ignored by the English language press.

His father is a Romanian violinist that studied in the same school where Stefan Gherghiou taught in Porumbescu. Examining the jury list one finds that 2 Romanian jurors list Gheorghiu as their teacher. What about the other violin jury? Pierre Amoyal. No one asked him to restrain from voting at any point in the competition.

In the 2nd round one sees obviously that out of 12 contestants, 8 of them were from members of the jury. The question about whether or not competitions are or can be made fair is a big one. As to whether they matter or not it is another question altogether. Obviously some winners are excellent and persistent and may sustain a career and others not. Miriam Fried Violin girl from indys Winner Jaime Laredo are both excellent musicians but they are not the only ones who sit on a jury where their students participate. Somehow it just seems that Indianapolis attracted suddenly a lot of attention about these issues which happen all the time in other competitions all over the world.

I am quite certain that there were quite a few fantastic violinists eliminated in the early rounds who would have been stiff competition for any of the finalists. The finalists made it as far as they did because the road was opened for them via the judges. Of course, everyone in this competition is good. Where are your facts? How can you back this up? Because, as far as I am concerned, I read a grand total of five sentences which formed nothing more than an offensive, baseless accusation. The case has been made a million times: the of violin teachers who have the top echelon violin-competition-winning students in their studios could probably counted on no more than two hands.

Why are we so surprised that these students would be winning these competitions? Moreover, Jaime Laredo has only been teaching at Cleveland for two years I believe. Yes, he has a lot of friends. Yes, he is very supportive of his students. No, he does not rig competitions. Why would he, all of the sudden, start throwing the in his favor this year? So, what gives? The competition that builds and supports careers of its many deserving candidates.

The competition that, in my opinion, does more than many others to support its competitors and laureates. Lebrecht, no less. We should instead be congratulating a fantastic violinist and musician on a wonderful set of performances and wishing her luck in her career.

Actually, we should be congratulating the entire fantastic set of competitors on high-level performances. The classical music industry is already plagued with issues and pressure from the outside. Why are we trying our hardest to tear it down from within? First, music competitions can always be improved! While I understand your point of view, I find irresponsible the way many competitions are handled.

Given that these juries, organizers and powers-that-be mostly consist of seasoned veterans in their respective fields, they should be aware of the fact that one must always consider the second and third order effects of ones actions. Whether judgement was impartial or not is certainly of importance but it is unfortunately often times even more important how things look or are perceived.

Whether that perception is based on actuality or imagination is of little pertinence. Regarding all the people complaining about an unfair competition, they are merely voicing their opinion to which they are entitled. Both Laredo and Fried should have recused themselves if their students were competing. Looks as if Tessa Lark a wonderful player! Congratulations to the finalists and to winner JinJoo! Have you read their bios?? Well-deserved, all around! As an experiment, what would the ideal competition look like? Could we in the forum form the ideal conditions for a fair and honest contest?

I would gladly contribute towards a cash prize for an honest Violin girl from indys Winner unbiased contest. While not a fan of competitions myself, I would be interested to see, and would contribute, to a properly run, completely unbiased competition. Would there be any participants if they knew in advance that the cards would not be stacked in their favor?

Just a thought…. At least it would be honest. If you are a competition judge also the teacher of a pupil who is up for a prize who are you going to vote for? The unfortunate result of this latest Indianapolis farce is that no matter how well this top prize winner plays and whatever engagements she manages to get she will no doubt for many always be suspect. As for the competition itself it is for many in the category of a laughing stock. The pupil of the jury president wins 1st.

Just another example from last week also, a harp competition in Saint Petersburg: all winners are students of jury members and excellent competitors having prices from other competitions were out in the semi finals. And I could list several more harp competitions in the last years with same. Debating fairer rules is a healthy exercise.

I think the greatest danger is that we get so inbred that everyone who manages to get accepted to any of these competitions sounds alike. Then we could continue this fight about who is better in a more fun and interesting way.

Possibly in positive language, maybe benefitting the performers by praising their strengths and their unique qualities?

Doubt it. This issue is overblown, and the resulting faux furor is unfair to the worthy winner.
