Konstantin Lapshin is a distinguished London-based Russian pianist who has been a prize-winner in more than 15 international and national competitions. Konstantin has recently been awarded a doctoral degree at the Royal College of Music, where he is also a piano teacher. During his time at the RCM, Konstantin won the Chappell Gold Medal, RCM Concerto Competition, Kendall Taylor Beethoven and Joan Chissel Schumann Prize Piano Competitions, as well as the college’s highest prize for the most outstanding student (across all disciplines), the Queen Elisabeth Rose bowl. He subsequently played for HRH Prince Charles and was nominated ‘Rising Star’ to play at Cadogan Hall, London. Konstantin has also performed in the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Salle Cortot in Paris, Great Hall of Moscow Conservatoire and Piano Salon Christophori in Berlin among the other concert halls. In 2014, Konstantin was invited to play Rachmaninov’s Concerto No.3 with the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra under the conductor and pianist, Mikhail Pletnev, as part of a Rachmaninov Festival.
Konstantin is also much in demand as a chamber musician. His collaboration with British violinist Madeleine Mitchell has let to a number of important performances, including the Baxton International Festival, Leeds University International Concert Series as well as concerts in London venues. The CD of the music by Welsh composer Grace Williams recorded in collaboration with M. Mitchell and other musicians has recently been named 'The CD of the week' by the 'Guardian' and was 2nd in the UK classical music charts.
“An impressive technique, and the impulsive and Romantic expression that has been a hallmark of so many Russian pianists, including Rachmaninov and Horowitz” – Fanfare magazine (USA) on Lapshin.
