Dear friends,


I’m very happy to welcome you to the International Piano Competition "Kyiv" in Ukraine. 


Kyiv was the first step in my professional career. I’m glad  to return to my native city that is full of life, culture and arts to hold our competition. 


I hope this week of October will be special for you not only because of the participation in the competition, but also because of opportunity to explore and enjoy the beauty of ancient and modern city of Kyiv!

Pavel Kachnov, Artistic Director



It is a great pleasure to support such a distinguished piano competition event in Kyiv.


We wish Pavel Kachnov who is an extraordinary musician and his team all the best for the event and are looking forward to establish a sound path for music in the future.
