Purcell Pianist Competition Successes

Congratulations to Year 12 classical pianist Yazdi who was honoured to receive First Prize at the Munich Piano Competition 2024. The competition, which took place during the May half term, was held at the Johannissaal of Nymphenburg Palace in Munich.

Following his return to the UK Yazdi also won the Senior Section of the 2024 Bromsgrove Young Musicians’ Platform. The audition round and Final Concert were both held at Routh Concert Hall in Bromsgrove and involved performing a selection of contrasting pieces. The Platform is a national competition for young instrumentalists and singers which is run by the trustees of the renowned Bromsgrove International Musicians’ Competition.

Yazdi, who studies at Purcell with Patsy Toh, is currently preparing for his performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.1 with the Bedford Sinfonia, which is due to take place in a few weeks. Hugely well done, Yazdi, and the very best of luck for the Rachmaninoff!
