Horowitz-Competition Kyiv-Geneva 2023

As the current situation in Ukraine makes it impossible for the Horowitz Competition to take place in Kyiv, the World Federation of Intl. Music Competitions will support and assist the Horowitz to hold its 2023 edition in Geneva, Switzerland. Endorsed by the Ukrainian Minister of Culture and Information Policy and the Mayor of Kyiv, the competition will be supported by a number of partners- most prominently by the Concours de Genève.

It is held from 13-21 April 2023 at the Geneva Conservatory, with the final round at Victoria Hall being accompanied by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
