Slava Sidorenko

Playing Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini on May 20th 2016

Described by Robert Beale for the Manchester Evening News as “a young pianist set to make a major impact”, Slava Sidorenko began his musical education at the age of five in Kharkov, Ukraine.

In 2003 he was awarded an Associated Board (ABRSM) full scholarship to study with Norma Fisher at the Royal Northern College of Music, where he won many major awards including the coveted RNCM Gold Medal. His studies continued until 2010 on the first RNCM International Artist Diploma Course with the generous support of the Royal Northern College of Music, the Musicians Benevolent Fund’s MBF Music Education Award, the Philharmonia Orchestra Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, The Worshipful Company of Musicians and The Boise Foundation.

His numerous competition successes include prizes in the Luzenko International Piano Competition in Ukraine, Moray International Piano Competition in Scotland, Sevenoaks Young Musician of the Year, the Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe Scholarship and Jacques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition, Dudley International Piano Competition, Brant International Piano Competition. He was also a finalist in the Busoni International Piano Competition in 2007 and awarded the Silver Medal of The Worshipful Company of Musicians in 2008.

Slava has appeared as recital and concerto soloist in the Ukraine, Germany, Italy, France and many parts of the UK. He made his debut in 2009 at the Wigmore Hall, as winner of the Jacques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition, (the CD “Live at Wigmore Hall” was released the following year), receiving glowing reviews. He performed with major orchestras including City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Camerata Chamber Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra.

He was recently appointed as RNCM Ambassador.

Concert tickets are available from The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal and Orchestra members.
