Artistic director of International Young Composers Academy in Tchaikovsky city
Dear friends! For the sixth time our Academy gathers students and guests from around the world – composers, performers, musicologists, journalists, and, what I would like to note in particular – music lovers. The interest continues unabated – more new names appear among the participants. The Academy becomes a first serious step to the big stage of new music for a lot of them. Intensive creative communication brings up new ideas; the understanding of one’s own vocation and the vision of one’s way in the musical surrounding manifests itself and sharpens. I wish inspiration and good luck to all participants!

Dear friends, colleagues and all participants of the Sixth Young Composers Academy! I am very glad, that our Academy has become the remarkable cultural event in the world – this year we received 179 from 45 countries. The Academy is universal – in the framework of its international young composers’ workshops, master-classes for young Russian performers, advanced training courses, educational concerts and lectures. Our Academy is one of the priority projects of the innovation programs of the Ministry of Culture of Russian Federation. On behalf of Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble I wish all of you good luck and new experiments.

Dear friends! International Young Composers Academy is a project with a certain temporal and spatial characteristics. For those who get here the Academy becomes an impulse to get deeper into the world of the contemporary music. For some participants it becomes a turning point in their artistic working process. It happened with Alexander Khubeev, Oleg Krokhalev, Galuba Bulyulina and Leonid Imennykh. I wish to the participants of the Academy 2016 to feel the magic of the place and to use the chance for perfecting their artistic skills!
