THE GLINKA INTERNATIONAL VOCAL CONTEST is one of the oldest and the most prestigious musical contests held in Russia. It is carried out since 1960. In the period 1968 – 2009 the famous Russian singer and pedagogue IRINA ARKHIPOVA was the Chief of Jury. The Jury of the XXV Glinka International Vocal Contest is headed by People’s Artist of the USSR, Laureate of Moscow city Prize, Professor VLADISLAV PIAVKO.

The program of the contest includes both opera and chamber pieces, which corresponds to the tradition of the Russian vocal performing art where opera singers participate in Lied recitals as well. The main part in the contest program is given to the classical Russian and world vocal music, but the required program also includes creations of the modern composers (written not earlier then 1975)

The most important distinguishing feature of the Glinka contest is that there is no preliminary selection by records. The jury estimates the competitors only according to the live performance auditions open for public.

Results of the contest are of importance for future professional career of the young musicians. Almost all singers in Russia and the CIS being the leaders of the domestic and world opera scene for decades are laureates or diploma winners of the Glinka Contest. Here are just some names from the different generations — Vladimir Atlantov, Aleksandr Voroshilo, Galina Gorchakova, Gegam Grigoryan, Sergei Leiferkus, Yuri Mazurok, Yevgeny Nesterenko, Elena Obraztsova, Maria Guleghina, Olga Borodina, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Vladimir Chernov, Anna Netrebko, Askar Abdrazakov, Ildar Abdrazakov, Sergei Murzaev, Olga Trifonova, Elena Manistina, Mikhail Kazakov, August Amonov, Anna Viktorova, Albina Shagimuratova, Oxana Volkova, etc.

Within 5 decades that the contest exists its organization was laid upon the well-shaped mature system of identification, gathering and promoting vocal talents. Thanks to that the leading position of Russia as the vocal empire was not just maintained, but increased its prestige.
