Talk:International Tchaikovsky Competition
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the International Tchaikovsky Competition article.|
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
- General competition info and 2002 winners from Official page
- Most winners' names from New York Times articles
- http://www.vor.ru/century/1958m.html (and other years) - some clarifications
- http://english.pravda.ru/culture/2003/03/18/44560.html - clarification of when violinists started, 2002 count
- http://english.pravda.ru/culture/2002/06/07/29926.html - number of prizes and entrants in 2002
- Piano winners (not completely accurate) from http://www.lib.washington.edu/music/tchaikovsky.html
- http://www.vor.ru/English/tales/tales_018.html - has many vocal winners, though all data also found in NYT
- http://inkpot.com/concert/pf00lugan.html - clarifies that Lugansky won silver, not gold
- http://english.pravda.ru/culture/2001/10/16/18171.html - confirms that Klimov won in 1958; NYT focused almost entirely on Cliburn, barely mentioning that there was also a violin competition
There are several winners that are unclear and which I have consequently left out for now, as well as some I haven't found at all. I hope to clarify them with further research.
I have tried to put all names in "Western" order, family name last. When presented with varying spellings I chose the one that turned up more often in Google. Most names are unlinked; I only linked those that I had heard of.

Tchaikovsky Competition 2006?
What's the deal? Is there a competition this year, or what?

Cello Competition - twice somebody has changed the winner to Vagram Saradjian. In 1970 Saradjian shared 4th prize as can be seen here on the Tchaikovsky Competition offical website:

Though this is not suprising given the wording of Saradjian's bio:
First prize issues
First prize (always to be awarded) is 20,000 Euro ... - well, that's rubbish (my highlighting). There are many examples where the first prize was NOT awarded.
Also, John Ogdon's article is now saying he and Vladimir Ashkenazy did not share first prize but were given separate first prizes. That seems loopy to me. There is only one possible first place, but it can be shared. Comments? -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 20:37, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
