He is studying under the tutelage of Richard Ormrod. He is fortunate to be a Leverhulme Arts Scholar for the year 2019-2020, trust that generously supports his postgraduate studies at the RNCM.
In this time, he enhanced his musical style having an important activity as soloist, playing in a diverse range of events (recitals, concerts, festivals). His continuous wish to self-improve made him an active participant in many national and international piano competitions, where he was awarded with good titles. He is performing regularly in UK, giving recitals in venues such as St Ann’s Church and Cross Street Chapel (Manchester),
As an active chamber and ensemble musician, Radu has played in concerts with various instrumentalists in places such as Oxford, Southport, London, and Great Bowden as well as numerous venues in Manchester. He has also been involved in orchestral projects such as playing the Celeste part in Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ as part of the RNCM’s Symphony Orchestra, and playing in a contemporary chamber orchestra performing George Benjamin’s work ‘At first light’ at Wigmore Hall.
In past years, Radu has had the privilege to perform in masterclasses with renowned pianists such as Kathy Stott, Craig Sheppard and Bernard D’Ascoli, as well as having coaching from great chamber music ensembles such as Sitkovetsky Piano Trio and Gaspard Piano Trio.
