Sunday morning at the Barbican and the LSO is set up ready for rehearsals. Lennie Mackenzie, orchestra chair has just introduced the jury to the players, a starry line-up featuring Imogen Cooper, Sir Antonio Pappano (at last, a conductor to judge the conductors!), Nikolaj Znaider, Andrew Marriner and Mackenzie himself.

And then he introduces the first of the three finalists. Starting proceedings is Stamatia Karampini, and if you’ll excuse me for a moment, I’m going to enjoy the sounds of La mer for a while. They’re just getting to that bit at the end of the first movement…
