Shock result: Canadian wins Montreal

As predicted, the Canadian pianist Jaeden Izik-Dzurko has won the Concours musical international de Montréal (CMIM).

He takes home a cash prize of C$30,000 offered by the city of Montréal and a development grant of C$50,000 from the Azrieli Foundation, along with other benefits.

The jury was chaired by exNY Phil manager Zarin Mehta.

Izik-Dzurko is next listed to contest for the Leeds Piano Competition in September.
