The XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition was held from 17th to 29th June in Moscow and St. Petersburg. This is one of the most important events on not only the Russian, but the global music calendar. Its purpose is to introduce the most talented young musicians to the professional community and the general public. Competitive auditions in such music disciplines as piano, violin, cello, solo singing, woodwind and brass took place at concert venues in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
According to the organisers, the contest was watched by more than 18 million people from 192 countries around the world, meaning the audience of the contest more than doubled that of 2015.
As a partner of XVI Tchaikovsky Competition, the BAIKALSEA Company provided the participants with the natural water Baikal Pearl, which became the official water of the event.
The BAIKALSEA Company is a Russian producer of the Baikal water in the premium segment, a leading producer of bottled water from artesian sources: the Baikal Pearl natural water, the Baikal Reserve mineral water, and the BAIKAL430 deep Baikal water.
