On April 17, 2015, 16 Year old Anastasia Rizikov won the Gold Medal and all other prizes and honours in the 57th Annual Jaén International Piano Competition in Spain. The Toronto born pianist was the youngest musician in the competition and celebrates being the youngest prize winner in the history of the competition.
