I am sure if you know Rafał Blechacz from the title you know that he was so far ahead of the pack at the competition, they refuse to award a 2nd prize to the next best (apparently not good enough).

I just got his DG debut CD includes pretty much all Chopin Preludes. At the first listen, this kid got goobs of potential; he plays waaaay beyond his age and his understanding of the music is deep. He IMO is already better than Yundi (the last champ) and probably already equal to Martha...

But both trails behind Ruberstein by a bit...Martha is getting to the retirement age but this Rafał is just getting started.....wow!
