Dear friends!
With excitement and pleasure I welcome all the participants and visitors of III International Piano
Competition in Almaty!
The childhood and youth is the most unforgettable time for each of us. Everything that we absorb during these years creates us and remains with us forever. I think creative competitions in youth necessarily give rise to pride of our culture in the future.
Teachers all over the world mark the escalating from year to year the technical level of the young pianists. But nevertheless the most important, in my opinion, is a person, his/her vision of music. I sincerely consider that victory at the competition is not as important, as familiarizing with the highest creations of human spirit.
We, musicians, in general, are very lucky in life because we are engaged in a profession which allows creating beauty, in which perfection does not have limits. I would like, that all we keep fidelity of the profession, realize ourselves not only as actors, but the musicians who distribute around only beauty.
The presence of such talented people in one place and during one time always creates especially magic atmosphere as if accumulates energy and endowments of everyone. I hope that our competition becomes a forum of unification on the basis of piano art of the various countries, people, pianistic schools and traditions.
Certainly, it is impossible now to foresee how will develop creative destiny of our participants. But we live in time when music becomes one of public priorities, and our activity day after day, from hour to hour changes the reality.
Dear admirers of music, participants of competition, judges! I wish you the bright impressions,
new revelations, set of happy instants and great inspiration!
