Ravishing Celebration at the Bach Competition 2006 in Leipzig
After yesterday’s concert of prize winners at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the winner of the GENUIN CD Special Prize was announced at the concluding celebration: GENUIN will produce a CD with Italy’s Francesco Corti (aged 21) during the coming year, also issuing it in a new series. Not only were the sound engineers at GENUIN enthusiastic over the young, exceptionally gifted musician: the top-class 8-person jury gave him best marks in all 3 rounds and, accordingly, awarded him first prize in the category of harpsichord.
