VLADIMIR KRAINEV, MUSICIAN AND TEACHER OF MUSIC

Vladimir KRAINEV is an outstanding pianist and professor of piano.

As a young child, his gift for music was discovered and developed by his teachers at the Kharkov music school. He continued his studies at the Central music school attached to the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow and later in the class of the great musician Henrich Neuhaus at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. He graduated from the Conservatory and did a post-graduate course under the guidance of his late professor's son, an outstanding pianist himself, Stanislav Neuhaus.

After wining first prizes at international contests in Lisbon (Portugal), Leeds (England) and especially after his brilliant victory at the IY Tchaikovsky International Contest in Moscow (1970) his carrier as a pianist began. His performances with famous orchestras, eminent conductors and outstanding soloists all over the world have made Vladimir Krainev known as a great musician of our time.

Teaching music came as a natural continuation of his artistic activities. Presently Vladimir Krainev is a professor at the Higher School of Music and Theatre in Hanover (Germany). 29 young pianists from Russia and CIS, France, Germany, China, Korea and other countries study in his class. Many of his students are laureates of prestigious international competitions.

For many years Vladimir Krainev has been giving series of concerts called "Vladimir Krainev invites" at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. His students as well as laureates of his competition for young pianists participate in these concerts side by side with outstanding musicians.

Member of juries of many piano competitions, Vladimir Krainev will chair the piano jury of the XII Tchaikovsky International Contest in Moscow in 2002.

DISCOVERING AND SUPPORTING NEW PIANISTIC TALENTS

The Vladimir Krainev International Charity Foundation in Support of Young Pianists was set up in June 1994 in Moscow.

The principal goal of the Foundation's activities has been the organization of the Vladimir Krainev International Competition for Young Pianists with the subsequent monitoring of its laureates in the interest of their further artistic development. Registered in the European Union of Music Competitions for Youth, this competition has been conducted every second year since 1992 with the assistance of the Ukrainian Center of Children's and Youth's Art, the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine and the City Council of Kharkov. Admitted to the competition are young pianists in two age categories: under 13 and between 14 and 16.

Laureates of this contest have performed in recitals and concerts with well-known orchestras in many cities of Ukraine, Russia, Baltic countries, Germany, France. They have participated in a number of music festivals such as: Colmar International music festival, "Russian winter", "Moscow stars", "Petersburg seasons", "Young talents of Russia" and others.

The 6th Vladimir Krainev International Competition for Young Pianists dedicated to the 10th anniversary of this musical event took place in Kharkov, Ukraine March 19-29, 2002. Three young participants aged between 7 and 11: Zuo Jan (Hong-Kong), Yasuda Hidekadzu (Japan) and Valeria Mirosh (Ukraine) were awarded the Grand-Prix.
