“Competing at international competitions is a worthwhile experiment for me,” Tien said. “I want to play music at international stages because new spaces always inspire me."

Tran Le Quang Tien is the second Vietnamese representative to compete at the Tchaikovsky competition, after his teacher - violinist Bui Cong Duy - won first prize at the competition in 1997.

Last year, Tien won first prize in the junior group of the 6th International Violin Competition held in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Under the guidance of his teacher violinist Duy, Mr. Tien won first prize at the Mozart Violin Competition held in Thailand in 2014.

Born in 2002, Mr. Tien is considered a music prodigy. After only two years of playing violin, his teacher noted that he could play as well as a graduate student at the academy.

Tien learned piano at the age of five and turned to violin at age six . However, he then quit violin to concentrate on painting and dancing before resuming the instrument at the age of nine.

The anniversary X International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians was held from June 15 to 25.

The competition is organised by the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Association of Tchaikovsky Competition Stars.

The jurors were professors from countries around the globe and world-famous musicians, including Vietnamese violinist Bui Cong Duy.

The first prize went to Nakyung-kang from the Republic of Korea and Eugene Kawai from Japan.

The International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians is the largest independent professional contest among young talents (up to 17 years old). The competition consists of three sections: piano, violin and cello.

It was launched in 1992 by the initiative of the Association of Tchaikovsky Competition Stars.

The original formula of the competition is that it is held in different countries, which gives young musicians worldwide a unique opportunity to participate in the contest.
