Ran Dank

Kudos to Mr. Dank! Winner of this years Hilton Head International Piano Competition.

"He did select works that took courage, knowledge and depth of feeling," said Menahem Pressler, founding member and pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio and chair of the committee.
Dank, 25, received a $15,000 check, a recital at Carnegie Hall and a performance with the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra in 2009.
More here (and short video clip).

In addition to the cash Dank will no doubt enjoy a boost up the competition food chain.

You can hear his performance of Chopin's Etude Op10no1 here.
