Eastern Seasons reception

26 November 2018

An evening of informal networking and classical music after the busy business day at the RBBF                           

Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko invites the Russian-British Business Forum delegates to celebrate the success of the forum. The musical programme of the evening is presented by the New Classics Foundation that supports young outstanding musicians and composers from Russia.

Roman Sosnin is the first winner of the New Classics Foundation scholarship. Being only 15 years old, the pianist has already gained recognition at a number of classical music competitions in Russia, including the recent First Prize at the International Rachmaninov Competition for young pianists (2018). Roman regularly performs at prestigious concert halls in Moscow, such as the Moscow International House of Music and the great hall of the Moscow Conservatoire where he recently performed with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. Roman has also toured internationally, with performance in Austria, France, Greece, Mexico and Spain.
