The contest in Pianello is of particular importance in the musical world. Pianist Lazar Berman and director of the Sorbonne's music department Jacques Grimbert are the members of the jury.
Dasha Petrova perfectly performed a complex programme, in spite of excitement, and won the sympathy of strict judges.
