Second to perform was Vladimir Stupnikov, Russia and the composition none of its charm with the second playing. The excellent conducting of the composer Roberto Molinelli and the attractive music showed what a good selection this work was and quite ideal for a competition final too, not being too long and giving good opportunity for the soloists to show off their skills and also show how good, accordion solo with orchestra can sound.
