A finalist of The 18th International Robert Schumann Competition Zwickau and Semi-Finalist of the XX Santander International Piano Competition Paloma O' Shea, Callum Mclachlan, 24, has been described as ‘A born Schumann player' with a ‘magical sense of colour and extraordinary technical prowess' (July 2019, London recital). Born into a family of musicians, he first started piano lessons with his father at the age of 7, and entered Chetham's School of Music at age 11, where he studied with Russian pianist and pedagogue Dina Parakhina. He was awarded the highest diploma from Trinity College – the FTCL, in his final year. He studied under Professor Claudius Tanski for Bachelors at the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg. He is now studying for Masters with Professor Jacques Rouvier in the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg and Professor Claudio Martinez Mehner in Cologne. In 2023 he was named as the only pianist selected for the renowned ‘Deutschen Stiftung Musikleben mit dem Dinorah VarsiStipendium, which supports him with his musical solo career. In the 22/23 season he made his recital debuts in the Klavier Festival Ruhr, Menton International Music Festival, Wasserburg Klavier Sommer, Busoni International Piano Competiton and gave the Swiss premiere of Eric Tanguy's Piano Quartet in Aubonne, Switzerland for ‘Classeek'. Most recently he was a finalist of the Royal Over Seas League Piano Competition in London, and was nominated for International Classical Music Classeek Award. He has performed at many of the most important concert venues throughout the UK, Europe, and USA, including Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Wien Konzerthaus, Pereda Hall Santander, London's Steinway Hall and Manchester's Bridgewater and Stoller Hall. Recently he performed with the renowned ensemble Casals Quartet and made his Japanese recital debut in Ginza Hall Tokyo.
