Multiple award winning pianist Daniel Ciobanu plays an intriguing Russian-themed programme.
Originally from Romania, Daniel came to study in Edinburgh under Graeme McNaught for a school gap year, and has retained close links with Scotland since. A multiple first prize winner worldwide, a notable highlight was playing on-stage alongside Lang Lang.
Only one word can adequately describe this performance... Sensational! Particularly exciting was the sense of devilry that permeated the faster variations, in which the notes glittered and dazzled like showers of diamonds. Michael Traub, UNISA Competition.
A name to be shouted from the rooftops... a young man whose staggering virtuoso credentials easily match those of the young Horowitz, Cziffra and Rosenthal... John Humphreys, Chairman
