The ‘First International Piano Competition DSCH’, named after D.D. Shostakovich 
will take place in Ukraine from 16-19 February 2016, at the Dnipropetrovsk Conservatory(in the Great Hall) named after Glinka. Musicians from Ukraine, Europe and Asia will form the jury.

Noteworthy is the fact that during the second round of the competition, soloists musicians will be able to choose to perform any chamber music piece by D.D. Shostakovich, and in any arrangement.

The entire competition will be available to view on our site, through web streaming, and is open to all.
"For me, the music, talent, and art of Shostakovich have long equated to a natural continuation of myself. His music taught me to think. Its emotion, tension, and unbelievable sincerity have always astonished me, although I can never hope fully to comprehend the depth of this music. It’s for these reasons that organising a piano competition dedicated to Dmitry Dmitriyevitch, where his chamber music legacy will be fully represented, is for me the natural homage I am able pay to his genius".

"In many ways culture influences our choices, and therefore, our future. One of the main goals of our society is to develop a new mentality in our generation. To realize this goal, many new projects need to be organized and implemented in education, culture and art. This is why, while putting together this competition named after the great composer of the 20th century, one of our prime objectives is that it should stand as a project that will help develop and promote young talented musicians from Ukraine and worldwide."
