Her Story

Ancuta later returned to Scotland and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she was offered a Stevenson Scholarship and an ABRSM international Scholarship. Ancuta studied with the distinguished pianists Fali Pavri and Aaron Shorr and graduated in 2009 with a First Class Honours Degree in Piano Performance followed by a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Degree. During her time at the RCS Ancuta won many prizes including the Mozart Concerto Competition performing K271 the "Jeunehomme" Concerto and performed C. Saint-Saens 2nd Piano Concerto with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra as part of her final exam. 
Ancuta has performed across Europe as well as in the U.K. in venues such as Edinburgh's Usher Hall, London's Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre and the New Auditorium at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Ancuta has also participated in masterclasses with great pianists such as John Lill, Steven Osborne, Katia Veekmans, Roy Howatt, Hyoong Jung Chang, Alexander Korsantia and Pascal Roge. Recent performances include Shostakovich Second Piano Concerto with Glasgow Sinfonia, Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto with the New Edinburgh Orchestra and the Warsaw Concerto with Helensburgh Orchestral Society as well as solo recitals in Italy and Germany and in 2021 Ancuta released her first CD of solo piano music by Chopin & Liszt.
Ancuta is thrilled to have been the Official Repetiteur for Clyde Opera Group since 2016 and fully enjoys the direct, hands on experience in the rehearsals with the very talented singers. She is very much looking forward to starting the rehearsals for Rossini’s Barber of Seville in July 2023.
Ancuta has been an ambassador for Hospices of Hope (the leading palliative care charity in South Eastern Europe) since 2008 and has also joined their volunteering team in the hospice Casa Sperantei in Brasov. With the huge help of her husband Quintin, their fundraising efforts have included numerous chamber music concerts, private recitals and various other performances in many venues as well as London's Globe Theatre, and these events have raised over  £30.048 for the charity.  
Ancuta is the Artistic Director of the Ardtornish Piano Retreat Concert Series which is held annually in June at Ardtornish Estate, Lochaline.
As well as performing, Ancuta very much enjoys teaching piano and she is the founder of the Nite Piano School based in Glasgow City Centre and the West End, as well as being a member of staff at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of St Andrews.
