One of the most important events of the classical music scene, this legendary competition is marked by the victories of the 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 2019's XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition!
From June 17th to 29th in Moscow and St. Petersburg, 228 competitors will compete for the First Prize, not to mention a shot at the Grand Prix (awarded only three times in the competition's history)! The groundbreaking 2019 edition marks the arrival of two new instrument families: woodwinds and brass join piano, violin, cello, and voice.
