The International Tchaikovsky Competition was first held more than 50 years ago. It is not only an important asset of Russian musical culture but is also one of the major events in the world music community. Participation by previous generations of musicians, including Dmitri Shostakovich, David Oistrakh, Emil Gilels, Mstislav Rostropovich, Heinrich Neuhaus, Georgy Sviridov, have enabled scores of young people from many countries to gain international prominence and to become established luminaries of the world’s leading concert stages. Past editions have spawned such renowned musicians as pianists Van Cliburn, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Mikhail Pletnev, Grigory Sokolov; violinists Viktor Tretiakov, Gidon Kremer, Victoria Mullova; cellists David Geringas, Nathaniel Rosen, Antonio Meneses and singers Evgeny Nesterenko, Elena Obraztsova and Deborah Voigt.
The International Tchaikovsky Competition is held once every four years. The XV International Tchaikovsky Competition will be held in summer 2015, commemorating Tchaikovsky’s 175 birthday. It will for the second time be held in the the two cities Moscow and St. Petersburg. The foremost Russian orchestras will be playing the opening and gala concerts and will as well accompany the final concertos of all four sections (piano, violin, cello, voice) of the competition. All performances will take place in the most important concert halls in Russia: Bolshoi Hall of Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Philharmony Hall in Moscow, Mariinsky Theatre, Philharmony and Mariinsky Concert Hall in St. Petersburg.
