About the competition

The International Tchaikovsky Competition, first held more than 50 years ago, is not only a valuable asset of Russian musical culture but is also one of the major events in the international music community.
The International Tchaikovsky Competition is held once every four years

The first, in 1958, included two disciplines - piano and violin. Beginning with the second competition, in 1962, a cello category was added, and the vocal division was introduced during the third competition in 1966. In 1990, a fifth discipline was announced for the IX International Tchaikovsky Competition - a contest for violin makers which was held before the main competition.
The XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition will introduce new speciality Woodwind instruments. The competition will be held in Moscow and St. Petersburg from 17 to 30 June 2019.
