International youth competition in memory of E. A. Mravinsky was founded in 1996. The competition was established in memory of the great conductor and musician of our time Evgeny Mravinsky.
The main goal of the competition is to open and support the bright musical talents, to acquaint the young musicians with St. Petersburg performance traditions, to extend and enrich the cultural ties between different regions of our country and foreign, near-abroad and far-abroad states.
The jury of the competition consists of the leading Russian and European musicians. The serious programme requirements secure high professional level of the participants.
Within 15 years the competition has been visited by more than 1300 young musicians from around the world. Many Mravinsky competition laureates became winners of the national project "Education".
The International competition in memory of E. A. Mravinsky is a member of Association of Music Competitions of Russia (AMCR).
In 2002 the competition was included into European Union of Music Competitions for Youth (EMCY). This opens new opportunities for winners of Mravinsky competition for promotion at the international level - participation in European concerts together with the winners of music competitions from other countries.
The International youth competition in memory of E. A. Mravinsky is held once in two years in the specialities: string instruments (nominations "violin-viola" and "cello") or wind instruments (nominations "woodwind instruments" and "brass instruments").
It is wonderful that in our not simple time people organize such competitions as Mravinsky International competition.
Owing to this the young talents are given all opportunities to improve their musical abilities.
I'm happy that our country was never lack of talents. Good luck to you, our young colleagues!
