Shabyt International Festival Kicked off in Nur-Sultan

The Shabyt International Festival of Creative Youth has begun in Nur-Sultan. Talented musicians from 16 to 30 years old took part in the annual competition.

The young performers will present masterpieces of classical music including the works of Mozart, Bach, Paganini, Wieniawski, Mendelssohn, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky.

The skills of the festival participants will be evaluated by foreign judges, who are the representatives of leading foreign violin schools.

“This is helped our students to raise their level of skill. I visit this festival every year. We arrive together with the artists, musicians and conductors who hold master classes here. The exchange of experience of musical life between Europe and Kazakhstan is very important,” said Professor of Vienna Conservatory, Gernot Winischhofer.
