What is especially exciting about Roman is that he recently won First Prize in the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition with a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No 1 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. A graduate of the Moscow State Conservatory who now studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Kosyakov was presented with a cheque for £15,000 and a guaranteed soloist appearance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, plus the opportunity to play a concerto in the USA and a number of other concerts in Britain. He also won the £500 Orchestra Prize as voted by the RPO.
Roman's programme for the evening
