Welcome to my Piano blog, I try to write my blog whenever I get the time, but sometimes I forget... If you are also interested in playing piano you might like to visit my YouTube site.
I study with Professor Vanessa Latarche in London.
Professor Vanessa Latarche is Chair of International Keyboard Studies Professor and Head of Keyboard at The Royal College of Music in London, she sits on the juries of many of the most prestigious piano competitions worldwide.
George was invited to make his first one hour long, solo recital at the age of nine and since then has performed in numerous locations including Wigmore Hall, Chicago Symphony Centre, The Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory and two performances at The Royal Festival Hall, one of which was with Lang Lang. At the age of eleven he achieved a distinction at Diploma in Music Performance (ABRSM).
He has won numerous awards both in the UK and Internationally, including the prestigious Emanuel Trophy at the North London Festival of Music & Drama, the Concours International de Piano at Lagny sur Marne, Paris, the Joan Davies Memorial Prize for the most promising young pianist at the 63rd ROSL Annual Music Competition and first prize in the Imola City Award competition.
In 2013 he was one of 12 young pianists from around the world to be offered the opportunity to travel to Munich where he worked and performed again with Lang Lang and became one of the Lang Lang Music Ambassadors and in 2015 took masterclasses with a number of eminent artists, including Dimitry Bashkirov.
For this year George will continue to give concerts in the UK, Europe and Russia.
