Tenerife pianist wins national contest to represent Spain in European music competition

Tenerife’s Alejandro Arango, a first year student at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Canarias has won Spain’s fourth national music competition held in Marbella on 18 May and will now go on to represent Spain in the International European Contest which will take place in Istanbul in October. His piano teacher at the Conservatory, Francisco Martínez Ramos, is delighted and understandably proud of his pupil prodigy, whose interpretation of works by Beethoven, Chopin and Schubert was said by judges to be brilliant, and a virtuoso performance. Alejandro was also awarded a grant to attend a fortnight’s musical workshop in Vienna. Congratulations to him, and the very best of luck in Istanbul!
