Annual International Young Composers Academy in Tchaikovsky city (Perm region) is the unique and only large-scale international young composers’ workshop in Russia. It was set up in 2011 by the leading Russian composer Dmitri Kourliandski (artistic director) together with Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble.

Academy is a creative laboratory for young composers and musicians from all over the world. Visiting professors are well-known composers who hold individual sessions and group lectures. During fortnight workshop the young composers write new compositions which are rehearsed and performed in the final concerts – in Tchaikovsky, Perm and in Moscow at the best concert stage by the leading Russian group – the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (MCME). Within the Academy there are also organized a number of educational concerts, master-classes for young musicians and special refresh courses for teachers. At the same time the MCME musicians carry out individual and ensemble master-classes for music teachers. Totally every Academy collected around 100 participants.

The Tchaikovsky city is the very nice place for the Academy. Privacy and rest, remoteness from noise and big cities, wonderful landscapes dispose to fruitful creative concentration. The unique city in the world, called in honor of the composer, apparently, is created to be a cradle of musical creativity.

Among the professors-teachers of the Academy were the well-known composers such as Beat Furrer (Austria/Switzerland), Franc Bedrossian, Philippe Leroux, Jean-Luc Herve, Mark Andre, Raphael Cendo, Fabien Levy, Jerome Combier, Colin Roche (France), Chaya Czernowin (Israel), Pierluigi Billone, Francesco Filidei (Italy), Carola Bauckholt (Germany), Peter Ablinger, Klaus Lang (Austria), Oscar Bianchi, Santiago Diez-Fischer (Switzerland), Yannis Kyriakides (the Netherlands), Antoine Beuger (the Netherlands/Germany), Elzbieta Sikora (Poland), etc.
