Roman Kosyakov piano

Bach Partita No 1 in B flat BWV825
Schuman Novelette in F Op 21 No 1
Schumann Kreisleriana Op 16

 

We are delighted to offer a concert to a 2019 Leamington Music Prize winner, following some excellent concerts by winners in the recent Midsummer Music Festival, and the success of Claire Barnett-Jones, a winner in 2013, who took the Audience Prize in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition earlier this year.

Roman, who came to the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire from the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatoire in 2017, has won many prizes in Britain and the USA and has made a recording of works by Liszt for Naxos. He includes Schumann’s masterpiece, Kreisleriana, as we prepare for his Piano Quintet to finish the Festival in style in the evening.
