Nathan Milstein in Paris - 1953

from From Russia to the West : the musical memoirs and reminiscences of Nathan Milstein, page 225:

[…] Oistrakh obeyed his government’s dictates dutifully and worked hard to get prizes for the Soviet contestants. The first prize went to Nelli Shkolnikova, who played somewhat more accurately – that is, hit fewer wrong notes – than the other participants. And there was a talented Japanese girl who didn’t get anything at all.
