Latvian cellist Kristiana Ignatjeva is a scholar studying for her Artist Diploma at the Royal College of Music, London with professor Melissa Phelps. She has worked with many prominent musicians including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Pinchas Zukerman, and Nicola Benedetti and has won many international and national competitions, recently being awarded the Muriel Taylor Scholarship. Kristiana plays on an Italian cello by Matteo Goffriller kindly loaned by the Royal College of Music.
For this concert Kristiana is being sponsored by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust.
The Trust was founded in 1958 by the Countess of Munster (Hilary Wilson), who devoted her life to music and who was herself a pianist of considerable talent.
Lady Munster’s generous endowment, from which the Trust’s annual income is derived, currently provides awards totalling up to £250,000 to young musicians to support postgraduate studies. The Trust also provides a small number of instrument purchase loans to former beneficiaries and runs a Recital Scheme.
