Sources[edit]

My sources:

There are several winners that are unclear and which I have consequently left out for now, as well as some I haven't found at all. I hope to clarify them with further research.

I have tried to put all names in "Western" order, family name last. When presented with varying spellings I chose the one that turned up more often in Google. Most names are unlinked; I only linked those that I had heard of.

Tchaikovsky Competition 2006?[edit]

What's the deal? Is there a competition this year, or what?

Saradjian[edit]

Cello Competition - twice somebody has changed the winner to Vagram Saradjian. In 1970 Saradjian shared 4th prize as can be seen here on the Tchaikovsky Competition offical website:

Though this is not suprising given the wording of Saradjian's bio:

First prize issues[edit]

First prize (always to be awarded) is 20,000 Euro ... - well, that's rubbish (my highlighting). There are many examples where the first prize was NOT awarded.

Also, John Ogdon's article is now saying he and Vladimir Ashkenazy did not share first prize but were given separate first prizes. That seems loopy to me. There is only one possible first place, but it can be shared. Comments? -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 20:37, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
