Four Russian competitors have won at the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition, which was held in Moscow and St. Petersburg since 14 June till 2 July.

Daniil Trifonov and Alexei Chernov won the 1st and the 5th prize at piano competition respectively. Sergey Dogadin was the 2nd at violin and Elena Guseva was awarded the 3d at voice competition.

This year 122 competitors from 29 countries took part at the piano, cello, violin and voice Tchaikovsky Competition. The chairman of the 2011 Organizing Committee was conductor Valery Gergiev, one of the most celebrated and influential musicians in the world today. For the first time, the competition was presented simultaneously at halls in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The prize fund is approximately 300,000 Euros. Apart from cash prizes to the top five competitors, Maestro Gergiev plans to engage the winners to perform with the Mariinsky Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra. More than that the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition will collaborate with three major artist management agencies in Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom to organize concert engagements over three years for prizewinners.
