The All-Union Conductors Competition was a competition among musical conductors in the Soviet Union from 1938 to 1988. It took place in Moscow for its first time in 1938 when a set of prizes were awarded by a jury chaired by Samuil Samosud and including Nikolai Myaskovsky, Heinrich Neuhaus, Alexander Goldenweiser, Aleksandr Gauk, Dmitri Kabalevsky amongst other relevant musicians.[1] From 1966 to 1988 the competition took place quite regularly, almost every five years.
