This achievement follows on from her success in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, where she won the Silver Medal and the Audience Prize in 2013.

We particularly enjoyed her recording of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16 coupled with Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23.
