Russian Music Competition

The International Russian Music Piano Competition (often referred to as The Russian Music Competition) is a piano competition established by Irina Prilipko-Morgan and her husband, Dan Morgan, in the spring of 2000. The competition is divided into four categories: Young Musicians, Junior, Intermediate, and Advanced. The final category, Advanced, is staged at Le Petit Trianon theater or another within California, alongside professional musicians and a professional orchestra.

The first final of the competition was held at the Appreciation Hall of Foothill College, Los Altos Hills in 2002. It involved 35 competitors, three jury members and a total of $500 prize for the winner. Since its inception, the competition has significantly changed; seven jury members now judge the performances, give master classes, and present lectures to young pianists during the ten-day-long competition period. The first prize winner of the Advanced category of the competition is awarded $5,000, a gold medal, a diploma, and possibly a contract with the Nova Vista Symphony concert engagements in the United States. Several smaller prizes are awarded for the prize winners of the lower categories, and special prizes are awarded where deemed necessary by the jury members.

Famous quotes containing the words competition, russian and/or music:

    Knowledge in the form of an informational commodity indispensable to productive power is already, and will continue to be, a major—perhaps the major—stake in the worldwide competition for power. It is conceivable that the nation-states will one day fight for control of information, just as they battled in the past for control over territory, and afterwards for control over access to and exploitation of raw materials and cheap labor.
    Jean François Lyotard (b. 1924)

    Louise, something in me tightens when an American intellectual’s eyes shine, and they start to talk to me about the Russian people. Something in me says, Watch it, a new version of Irish Catholicism is being offered for your faith.
    Warren Beatty (b. 1937)

    Have you ever been up in your plane at night, alone, somewhere, 20,000 feet above the ocean?... Did you ever hear music up there?... It’s the music a man’s spirit sings to his heart, when the earth’s far away and there isn’t any more fear. It’s the high, fine, beautiful sound of an earth-bound creature who grew wings and flew up high and looked straight into the face of the future. And caught, just for an instant, the unbelievable vision of a free man in a free world.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)
