PARIS, April 03, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia actively prepares for the 2015 Pyotr Tchaikovsky international contest to hold it on a high level, Russian pianist Denis Matsuyev has said in an interview to Itar-Tass in Paris, noting that the 175th anniversary of the great Russian composer will be marked next year.
"Very much preparatory work is underway in the Russian government," he said.
Matsuyev won his first contest prize in 1998 when he was 23.
The world-known Russian pianist is in Paris in connection with the decision of the UNESCO to award the Goodwill Ambassador Title to him. He will give a concert at the organization’s headquarters for representatives from 200 countries, together with the state symphonic orchestra of the Republic of Tatarstan conducted by Alexander Sladkovsky.
It is a unique orchestra that in three years became one of the most outstanding in the country, the musician notes, adding much attention is paid to culture in Tatarstan.
The 15th Tchaikovsky international contest of pianists, violinists, cellists and singers will be held in Moscow and St. Petersburg in 2015.
