Join Orkney Arts Society for its annual St. Cecilia’s Night concert on Wednesday 22nd November 2023 at 7.30pm in King Street Halls, Kirkwall. To celebrate the Patron saint of music, Romanian pianist George Todică will be performing works for solo piano by:
• Domenico Scarlatti, J.S.Bach
• Mozart, Chopin, Rachmaninov,
• Maurice Ravel and George Enescu
Like Mozart, George Todică started his musical training at a very early age. When he was six, he began piano lessons under the guidance of Silvia Panzariu. He entered piano competitions at the age of eight and has since obtained over twenty prizes in international competitions. In 2010 he won the ‘Constantin Silvestri’ Scholarship, which brought him to Scotland where he studied at the Stewart’s Melville College in Edinburgh. The following year he entered the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he has been a star student of Graeme McNaught, Norman Beedie and Jonathan Plowright.
Todică made his London début at the Wigmore Hall in October 2018. In 2019 with his prodigious talent he took First Prizes at the Norah Sande Awards in England, the ‘Stefano Marizza’ Piano Competition in Italy, and the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in Wales. His recent competition successes include winning First Prize at the Royal Over-Seas League Keyboard Awards and taking Second Prize at the George Enescu International Piano Competition in Bucharest in 2022.
