BMus 1st Class Hons from Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Brilliant technique and amazing sight reader. Very wide range of repertoire
Twenty-two- year-old pianist Hazel Nguyen began her musical education at the age of three, at the National Academy of Music in Vietnam. Developing a controlled, prodigious technique, she has been praised for her authority over the most complex technically demanding pieces, the depth of her musical insight and charismatic stage presence. Receiving a Full Scholarship for the Joint Principal Study Conducting and Piano course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Hazel recently graduated with a First class degree. She has been studying with Victor Sangiorgio, Heather Slade-Lipkin, Jonathan Plowright and attended masterclasses with Martin Roscoe, Steven Osborne and Richard Goode. Hazel has an endless passion for Baroque and Classical Era. She has studied the period instruments such as harpsichord and pianoforte intensively. Her latest project, which explored a series of French Baroque harpsichord music on the modern piano, was very highly commended at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Lately, her virtuosic recording of Beethoven’s Bagatelle op.33 no.5 was broadcasted on BBC Radio 3. She was also awarded the Jock Holden Memorial Trophy for the best performance of a Mozart concerto. Hazel won the Rosanne Archibald Trophy for the most promising musician at the Blackburn Music Festival, and was one of the winners in the Glasgow Rising Star competition last year. As a collaborative pianist, Hazel is a member of the O’Breachain Trio, and their latest debut features the great Mendelssohn’s Trio in D minor, Haydn’s Gypsy trio and Bach Keyboard Concertos. As a student conductor, she is also the founder of the Rising Voices choir and the RCS Chamber orchestra.
