About Musicians:

Erdem Mısırlıoğlu was born in Ipswich in 1989 to a Turkish father and British mother. Neither of his parents

are musicians, but he started his own musical training at the age of six, having piano lessons from the age of

nine. At the age of thirteen he was recommended to attend a conservatoire on Saturdays and studied for five

years under Mark Fielding at Junior Guildhall. He is now in the third year of his undergraduate course at

GSMD, where he has won a full scholarship to study with concert pianist, Martin Roscoe.

In 2006, Erdem was a prizewinner in the International Rachmaninov Competition for Young Pianists, held in

the composer’s birth place, and was also awarded the Keyboard Instrument Prize at GSMD. In 2008 he won

the Principal’s prize at GSMD and was the piano winner of BBC Young Musician of the Year.

Subsequently, he performed Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with the BBC National

Orchestra of Wales.

He has enjoyed receiving masterclasses from top pianists including Ronan O’Hora, Bernard Roberts, Peter

Donohoe and Lang Lang, who said about Erdem’s playing: “Such a special sound...I really enjoyed

everything he does, it’s quite stunning playing”.

He is an active performer, regularly appearing as recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician. Next

season’s concerto performances are to include Liszt’s 1st Piano Concerto, Rachmaninov’s 3rd Piano

Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s 1st Piano concerto. His past performances have taken him to France, Poland

and Russia and he has played in venues such as St Martin in the Fields, Snape Maltings, Cardiff Millennium

Centre and the Wigmore Hall. A recital of Beethoven’s op 109 Sonata and Chopin’s 4 Ballades at the

Wigmore Hall was broadcast on Radio 3.

A keen chamber musician, Erdem is part of a piano trio formed with friends at GSMD as well as the Arnold

Camerata, a larger ensemble of string and wind players from GSMD and RAM, with whom he recently

performed Schubert’s Trout Quintet and Poulenc’s Wind Sextet among other works. He enjoys working with

other musicians and always wants chamber music to be a part of his musical life.

Erdem won the piano section of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2008. In 2011, he was awarded first prize

in the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe's intercollegiate piano competition. A passionate chamber

musician, Erdem is also a member of 'Trio Isimsiz', a piano trio formed with friends at the GSMD.

Emre Engin, one of the proteges of Maestro Pinchas Zukerman, was awarded “The Young Soloist of the

Year” by 2012 International Istanbul Music Festival, which was followed by many other awards such as the

“Yehudi Menuhin Award” by Sudborough Foundation, the Royal College of Music, “Best Emerging Artist” by

Donizetti Classical Music Awards, 1st prize at the Ilhan Ozsoy Presidential Violin Competition, and the

prestigious “Career Grant” by N. Eczacibasi Foundation. He has given solo and chamber music

performances in many countries such as the United States, Canada, England, Italy, Holland, Germany,

Portugal, Spain, Turkey, and Israel. The artist recently performed Mozart’s Violin Concerto no.5 “ Turkish”

with Tekfen Philharmonic at the opening concert of 2020 International Istanbul Music Festival.

Mr. Engin completed his bachelor’s degree with Itzhak Rashkovsky at the Royal College of Music, London

with first class honors and his master’s degree with Pinchas Zukerman and Patinka Kopec at the Manhattan

School of Music on a full scholarship, generously supported by the CEV “Harika Yetenekler” Foundation. He

is currently in the last year of his doctoral degree at Stony Brook University Music Department and holding a

violin teaching assistant position at the same institute. Mr. Engin was appointed as the concertmaster of the

New Manhattan Sinfonietta by the legendary conductor Gurer Aykal in 2018. He is one of the co-founders of

a New York based online concert platform “Musik in the Air”.
