Daniel to open mu­sic sea­son

The Galloway News - - THE TICKET -

Young pi­anist Daniel Ciobanu will open the new Mu­sic in Dum­fries sea­son to­mor­row.

Daniel was born in Ro­ma­nia and, af­ter win­ning a schol­ar­ship to study abroad while still at school, spent a year at Ste­warts Melville Col­lege in Ed­in­burgh.

Sub­se­quently, he en­rolled at the Royal Con­ser­va­toire of Scot­land in 2010 and im­me­di­ately es­tab­lished him­self, win­ning a num­ber of com­pe­ti­tions and be­ing se­lected to per­form a solo at the Royal Fes­ti­val Hall in May, 2011.

Since then, Daniel’s ca­reer has de­vel­oped rapidly, with per­for­mances in pres­ti­gious venues around the world and with many or­ches­tras, in­clud­ing the Royal Scot­tish Na­tional Orches­tra.

In 2017 he was sec­ond in the in­ter­na­tional Arthur Ru­bin­stein com­pe­ti­tion in Tel Aviv and was awarded the prize voted for by the pub­lic.

He has cho­sen an am­bi­tious pro­gramme for the con­cert, a com­mem­o­ra­tion of the end­ing of the Great War 1914-1918, re­flect­ing both death and loss but also hope for the fu­ture.

The con­cert is in St John’s Church, Dum­fries, at 7.30 pm and tick­ets are avail­able at the door.
