(The recording begins with about three minutes of the pre-ceremony piano concert by Maria Eliseeva. The actual awarding of the Prizes begins at about the 35-minute mark).
The entire ceremony is slightly more than 90 minutes in duration.
(You can use the RealPlayer controls to skip around to different parts of the recording, if you are so inclined.)
The ceremony was webcast live thanks to generous support from the Harvard Extension School and from Real.com. Special Thanks to Bruce and Julian Petschek (et al.!) for shooting and then editing the video, to Dave Feldman for heroically and robustly engineering it, and to Richard Pauli of Real.com for applying the Pauli Inclusion Principle.
