Pianist runner-up in NY

The talent of teenage Turkish Cypriot pianist Görsev Tepe has been recognised again on an international stage, coming in as runner-up at a competition in New York.

Fifteen-year-old Miss Tepe, who is studying music in the US, took part in the 11th International Music Competition organised by the Long Island Conservatory of Music where she received an “outstanding performance” award three years ago when she was 12.

This year’s success was achieved with performances in the final of Mozart’s Piano Sonata No 12 and Edvard Grieg s Piano Concerto.

She is now preparing for a Stars at Tenerife competition in the Canary Islands in November, while continuing her piano studies at the New York Long Island Conservatory of Music, where she studies with renowned Professor Tamara Poddubnaya.

Miss Tepe has previously been awarded a high honour at a festival organised by the Florida International Music Club Federation, and at the age of 14 won the second International Music Competition in Germany, where she played alongside musicians from Russia, Germany, Japan, Holland, China, the US and Turkey.
