Grand Prix of the II Vladimir Krainev International Piano Competition went to Timofey Vladimirov.
All the other participants in the final auditions with the orchestra received equivalent laureate titles.
“It was incredibly difficult to choose one in each category among so gifted artists”, - said A. Romanovsky, - “but now we want to start drift away from the competitiveness, because the main point is to give the young musicians the opportunity to express themselves. All our winners are now our family, whom we are not going to say good-buy. We will follow their further careers, help them to grow and develop professionally. ”
According to the jury, the level of the competition was very high.
“The competition is absolutely amazing, the level is fantastic,”- said the jury member Rena Shereshevskaya. “At some point, I was forgetting that these were children and began to judge very strictly. Then I pulled up myself: this is a 15 year old child in front of me! “Someone I liked more at the recital tour, the others – with the orchestra, but overall I had the best impressions.”
