Svetlanov Symphony Orchestra regrets about the incident at the Tchaikovsky Competition

27.06.2019

We sincerely regret about the incident that occurred during the performance of the pianist An Tianxu in the final of the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition on June 25, 2019. This incident was made possible due to discrepancies in the documents provided to the orchestra for the performance and to the host announcer regarding the order in which the pieces were to be performed. A detailed analysis of what happened will be conducted by the leadership of the orchestra and “ROSCONCERT" at the end of the Competition.
