A member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions (WFIMC) since 2004, the International Competition for Young Pianists in Memory of Vladimir Horowitz has been severely impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine. The World Federation of International Music Competitions thus taken the initiative to host this competition in Geneva (Switzerland), as a gesture of support for a great cultural institution, as well as an attempt to bridge differences and bring people together through music.

The World Federation will thus present the Horowitz Competition under the name Horowitz Competition Kyiv-Geneva, from 13-21 April 2023 in Geneva. WFIMC believes their mission of striving for artistic excellence, authenticity, fairness and equality to support young artists is meaningless unless they give an example to show their social and cultural responsibility: to bring a devastated arts institution back into view; to support young artists in war-torn Ukraine; and to show that common values and common understanding among young people can build a basis for a better future.
