Concert performances by Sixth Former Galin Ganchev have become something of a phenomenon at Shrewsbury School. Word spread very quickly within a few months of his arrival in 2010 that we had in our midst a pianist of quite exceptional talent. Galin’s stunning performances have attracted a large and loyal audience.
If you have not yet had the privilege to experience the quality of Galin’s wonderful pianism, please do come and hear him while you still can…! He leaves Shrewsbury at the end of this term to begin his studies at the Royal College of Music in London.
Galin began his piano studies at the age of six and later underwent more formal tuition for six years at the Dobri Hristov National School of Arts in Varna, Bulgaria. He then continued his piano studies for a further year with Stanislava Stavreva and since September 2010 has been studying with the internationally acclaimed Anglo- Italian pianist Peter Bradley-Fulgoni at Shrewsbury School.
“My desire to practise the piano and give concerts has led me to the threshold of what promises to be a fascinating and magical life. I love to make my audiences experience the works of music I perform at the deepest emotional level. 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.”
