On October, 28 – November, 7, 2001, the First International Piano Competition in memory of Emil Gilels took place. This date began the history of the competition.
That time, the contest was participated by pianists of only five world countries, but it was so successful, that in 2006 representatives of 13 countries visited Odessa to demonstrate their talent.
To participate the competition, the contestants had to pass a difficult qualifying round. The competition itself consisted of three tours, during which the participants had to perform works having been performed by Emil Gilels and “Ukrainian capriccio” by Vladimir Ptushkin, having been composed especially for the contest.
