Trio of russian pianists in competition finals

Three young Russians will play in the finals of the Robert William and Florence Amy Brant International Pianoforte Competition at Town Hall on Saturday 27 June.

Birmingham-based Tatiana Dardykina (born 1981, Russia), London-based Alexei Petrov (born 1982, Russia) and Alexander Karpeyev (born 1983, Russia) who also lives in London, impressed the judges during the preliminary and semi-final rounds at the weekend. All three will play in the competition finals at Town Hall on Saturday 27 June. Chairman of the judges, Andrew Ball, said “We had a fantastic weekend with a really high standard of playing. The three finalists are all outstanding and we have some seriously heavyweight pianism to look forward to at Town Hall on Saturday.”
