In the frame of our platform “Rising Stars”, Ledra Music Soloists proposes a piano recital with the talented young Cypriot pianist David Anastasiou. The platform, which was inaugurated in 2007, aims to promote and support young soloists aspiring to become performers.

David Anastasiou was born in Nicosia in 2000. He began studying music and learning piano at the age of four. He, then, continued his education at the Nicosia Music School where he studied piano with Dr. Nicolas Constantinou and graduated in 2018 with distinction.
In September of 2019, David will start his undergraduate studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, majoring in Piano Performance. David has been awarded numerous prizes in both local and international competitions, such as the 22nd Evangelia Jiarri International Piano Competition (2nd prize), the 3rd Panhellenic Piano Competition for Young Pianists (1st prize) and the 10th Pancyprian Piano competition AvantGarde. The latter, gave him the opportunity to perform Franz Liszt’s Fantasia in Hungarian Folk Tunes with the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Mr. Giorgos Kountouris. The young pianist has participated in numerous masterclasses with distinguished musicians and pianists, such as Andreas Frölich, André Gallo, and took lessons with Prof. Marta Gulyás at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. David has already made his first steps as a soloist, giving recitals in the Greek cities of Kilkis and Thessaloniki.
