International Tchaikovsky Competition Results



 

The XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition is over! The first prize winner in the cello division is Armenia Narek Hakhnazaryan, a truly exceptional artist. He recently received his artists diploma from New England Conservatory under the instruction of Lawrence Lesser. Despite some unfortunately remarks made by the conductor during Hakhnazaryan’s dress rehearsal, the cello finalist demonstrated a high degree of professionalism, keeping calm and collected and focusing on his finale performance.

In the violin category there was no first prize awarded, but two Americans received 4th and 5th prizes which is a phenomenal achievement that we are very proud of.
