About the artist:
"Remarkable young pianist, Veronika Shoot gave a stunning recital of virtuosity with great assurance, sensitivity and courage. A future artist in the making" Herald Express
Acclaimed by Yehudi Menuhin at just 6 years old as 'destined to become a great pianist', Russian-born Veronika Shoot moved to England aged 5, and gave her debut piano recital aged 7. Her rising solo career has already taken her for concert tours around the world to UK, Russia, Belgium, Holland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, Germany, France, Israel and South America.
In 1998 Veronika studied with full scholarships at the Yehudi Menuhin and Purcell Schools of Music, with Russian professors Irina Zaritskaya, and Tatiana Sarkissova. While at the Purcell School she was invited to perform Chausson concerto for piano, violin and String quartet with Jack Liebeck at a charity concert which was shared with pianist Jean Yves’ Thibaudet at the prestigious Opera Gabriel at the Chateau de Versailles.
In July 2011 Veronika graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with the first class Honours. Currently she is completing a Masters degree in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with prof. Fali Pavri under a full scholarship.
Raised into a family of musicians, Veronika’s father and brother both composers, she has always been interested in exploring and performing a wide range of contemporary music. In 2006 She was invited for the 100th anniversary of Shostakovich, to give a live performance on BBC RADIO 3 playing his preludes, and pieces written by her father, the composer Vladislav Shoot. Veronika was a finalist at the Yamaha International Piano Competition (YMFE) where she received a special award.
Future performances include recitals in Brussels Beaux Arts, Belgium with violinist Leonard Schreiber in early February, closely followed by a London appearance when Veronika will perform Stravinsky Concerto for piano and winds in Saint Johns Smith Square with London's new orchestra 'les Voix Nouvelles' under the baton of Jean-Louis Gosselin.
