            GET READY FOR #TCH16

            One of the most important events of the classical music scene, this legendary competition is marked by the victories of virtuosos it has brought into the spotlight. The event has taken place once every four years since Van Cliburn’s historic victory in 1958, and is now in its 16th edition. Be sure to catch every minute of the 2019 International Tchaikovsky Competition!

            From June 17th to 29th in Moscow and St. Petersburg, 228 candidates will compete for the First Prize, not to mention a shot at the Grand Prize (awarded only three times ever)! The groundbreaking 2019 edition marks the arrival of two new instrument families: woodwinds and brass join piano, violin, cello, and voice.

            For the second time, medici.tv is the Official Webcast Partner of the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition, and will be live streaming the event in its entirety. Four years ago, TCH15 had 10 million views in 187 countries and 13,000 cities: now it’s time to get ready for TCH16!
