Hawijch Elders, at 19 the youngest of the finalists, won the Second Prize and her sparkling play made her the surprise of the evening, as far as I and the audience were concerned. Highly talented, full of spirit and spontaneity, musically gifted and not hindered by nerves or any doubts, she played the Dvorak Violin concerto full of inspiration and straight from her heart.
