Daniel Ciobanu

“Using our perfect pitch, we can’t deny the fact that the word Conservatoire sounds terribly similar to the word conservative therefore, to put it more mildly, a machine of mass execution of originality, innovation and individual spices. Well, here is exactly where the RCS proves the contrary. A place that struck my fascination with its ferocious generosity and refreshing atmosphere, a place that you can hardly feel anything but compassionate gaze and fizzy brains while stimulating to the last corridor that you can witness either by listening or looking. Being used myself to provoke the insides of this classical world of borders in which my fingers circulate, I suddenly found myself in the aura of greatest support and confidence that every artist needs and requires! Refreshing – Creative – Stimulating is what the RCS means to me!”

— Daniel Ciobanu

Courses: BMus Performance (Piano) 2014 and MMus Performance (Piano) 2016


Daniel Ciobanu first attracted international acclaim in 2017 at the Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv where he won both the Silver Medal and Audience Prize. He subsequently appeared at Carnegie Hall, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Konzerthaus Berlin, Tonhalle in Zurich, Lucerne Festival, Enescu Festival while becoming the first ever Artist in Residence at the George Enescu Philharmonic in Bucharest. Eclectic and restless personality, festival organiser, magazine editor and enthusiastic painter, we are talking, therefore, about a cultural wizard whose activity overflows beyond the sphere of concert halls.
