The recent incident that happened at Lipinski-Wieniawsky Violin Competition in Poland has given rise to many comments on the web: the fact that you have as jurors teachers/artists famous and important is not to be questioned, as well as the fact that they can involve their students. It lies in the artistic direction of the competition and the president of the jury to impose a regulation to ensure the level of competition and the absence of conflicts of interest. At Premio Bonporti International Baroque Violin Competition in Italy (founded in 1996, among the various presidents G. Leonhardt, L. van Dael, C. Banchini, E. Gatti, S. Kuijken) the juror/teacher shall abstain from voting on the students who taught the past two years and also with respect to students who have played over the ensemble of teachers in the last six months. Also a special voting mechanism prevents ” drugging ” evaluations . The presence of qualified musicians/teachers as jurors can and must always ensure the high quality and the great participation in the competitions, also for the (good) students of the jurors.
