IV Yankelevitch International Violin Competition is supported by the Government of the Omsk region since 2009.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Yuri Yankelevitch
in Omsk, the birthplace of the great Maestro, the government established an international contest named after him. The idea of this competition was supported by the famous disciple of Yankelevitch - people's artist of the USSR Vladimir Spivakov, who is the Honorary President of the competition.
The emblem contest has become a stylized letter "I", as if woven from a violin bow and flowing music. It symbolizes not only the name of a prominent violinist and teacher, but also performing individual "I" that demonstrates each participant.
A musical contest was held in Omsk in 2009, 2011 and 2013 and earned the status as one of the most prestigious violin competitions in Russia and abroad.
The IV Yankelevitch International Violin Competition will be held in Omsk from April 24 to may 1, 2018. The winner will receive in perpetuity the Italian violin masters of the nineteenth century Eugenio Degani.
Acceptance of applications for participation of the IV Yankelevitch International Violin Competition completed. The names of thirty-two participants
of the IV Yankelevitch International Violin Competition was announced on February 1, 2018.
