    A Piano Recital given by Galin Ganchev (Alington Hall)

    We are thrilled to welcome back the extremely talented pianist and Old Salopian Galin Ganchev to Shrewsbury School.  Raised in a musical family in Bulgaria, Galin has played piano since the age of six.  He received an invitation to study the piano with the internationally acclaimed Anglo-Italian pianist Peter Bradley-Fulgoni at the Music Department at Shrewsbury School, and in February 2010 travelled to the United Kingdom and auditioned successfully for a music scholarship at the School, which he took up in September 2010.

    "When I sit at the piano I immediately feel at one with it, and such a feeling of ‘unity’ with the instrument cannot be explained by anything other than the language of music itself.”

    Galin has appeared in competitions including Llangollen and Trefeglwys, in which he won the first prize twice; Gregynog and BBC Shropshire, in which he gained the ‘'Young musician of the year’' title in 2012. He has taken part in more than 70 concerts in the United Kingdom, Bulgaria and Italy,  playing in renowned venues such as Wigmore Hall, the Holywell Room, the Tabernacle in Machynlleth, Varna State Opera House, Varna Festival and Congress Centre and others. During his time in Shrewsbury, Galin had five full-length piano recitals in the United Kingdom, six in Bulgaria and one in Italy. He has also collaborated with the Vidin Philharmonic, Shrewsbury School, Shropshire Philharmoic and Varna Philharmonic orchestras, and his repertoire includes more than 100 pieces of music – most of which are solo piano and chamber works.

    Galin is currently a scholarship student in the Royal Academy of Music, where he studies piano with Ian Fountain and piano accompaniment with Michael Dussek. He has taken part in masterclasses with internationally renowned musicians such as Michael Roll, Yevgeny Sudbin, Tatiana Sarkissova, Michael Foyle and others.

    His programme will include pieces by Scarlatti (selection of sonatas), Shostakovich (selection of preludes and fugues), Chopin (selection of mazurkas) and Prokofiev (6th Piano Sonata)

    Please join us as we celebrate a truly outstanding young musician.

    Tickets £15.00, with a retiring collection towards Galin’s continuing studies at the Royal Academy of Music.

    Tickets available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or 01743 280812.
