What is the "official accompanist"?
Applicants who successfully pass the preliminary audition can join the 1st and 2nd rounds with piano accompaniment and then go to the final round accompanied by an orchestra. Official accompanists are pianists who play an accompaniment for contestants. Also, they play the piano in practice for contestants in advance of the actual performance of each round, and more than that, they sometimes give advice. Official accompanists are so-called "partners" to challenge the big stage with contestants!
