A compulsory piece, composed by Hugues Dufourt, which tests the limits of the instrument - «Le mani del violonista» - and the concerto no. 2 in c minor, op. 129, of Dimitri Shostakovitch: the successful interpretations of the Russian violinist Dmitry Smirnov convinced the jury, and put him on the right way to gain the first award of the Concours international de violon Tibor Varga Sion Valais 2015, on August, 26 at the Ferme Asile, in Sion (Switzerland), with the Chamber Orchestra of Lausanne (conductor: Gilbert Varga). Ji Won Song (Korea) took the second prize, Yuliia Van (Germany) the third place.

The special prizes were awarded to Dmitry Smirnov (audience award, best compulsory piece award) and Yuliia Van (young jurors award).
