The Mariinsky Orchestra, founded in 1783 in St Petersburg, is one of the oldest musical institutions in Russia. Under its current Artistic and General Director Valery Gergiev, the orchestra has become one of the leading symphony orchestras in Russia and one of the top orchestras in the world.

The International Tchaikovsky Competition, first held more than 50 years ago, is one of the major events in the international music community. The competition gives the brightest and best young pianists, violinists, cellists and singers a chance to be noticed by the international professional community and the general public, launching many glittering musical careers. Previous winners have included Van Cliburn, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Peter Donohoe, Denis Matsuev, Gidon Kramer, Mario Brunello, Deborah Voigt, Victoria Mullova and, most recently in 2011, Daniil Trifonov. The 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition took place in June and July 2015 in Moscow and St Petersburg and all rounds of the competition were streamed live on the internet reaching a global audience. Over 600 applications were received by artists from 45 countries.

The winners are guaranteed an international tour with Gergiev and this evening’s concert gives London its first chance to see the Gold Medallists of the 2015 competition performing live.

The Mariinsky UK Tour is supported by BP.
