Daniel to open music season
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.
