High reputation of music school
International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians could be hosted by Minsk next year
“Minsk has a highly professional school, great concert halls and music connoisseurs: vital elements in conducting such events. It’s possible that the next competition will take place in the Belarusian capital,” the Deputy Director General of the Interstate Development Corporation, Sergey Demensky, has told journalists.
This year, the competition will be held in Novosibirsk and, in the violin category, young musicians will be accompanied by the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Belarus, which will also accompany finalists during a gala-concert.
“The Belarusian Symphony Orchestra is highly professional, being able to play almost any concert. This is why it is so trusted,” Mr. Demensky emphasises.
Many participants of the competition will be selected remotely, with face-to-face formats used in Seoul, Yerevan, Paris and Minsk. “The fact that Minsk is listed among these cities shows the high reputation of the Belarusian music school, and of the Belarusian State Music Academy’s Gymnasium-College,” he notes.
