The Artist

Born in Hong Kong, Raymond Wui-Man Yiu moved to Aberdeen in 2008 and attended the Aberdeen City Music School studying the piano with Peter Evans. During his time at ACMS, he made his concerto debut with the Meadows Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh in 2010. He also won the title of Aberdeen Young Musician of the Year, which led to a performance of Schumann’s Piano Concerto with the Aberdeen Youth Symphony Orchestra. He won prizes at the Edinburgh Competition Festival, including the coveted Concerto Prize where he performed Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No 1 with the Festival Orchestra. He gave recitals at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2012 he won a scholarship to study with Joan Havill at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where he obtained his Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees with Distinction. He has recently been awarded 3rd Prize at 2019 Norah Sande Awards, Highly Commended Prize at 2019 Bromsgrove International Musicians’ Competition and Third Prize at 2018 Windsor International Piano Competition, and subsequently has been invited to join the KNS Classical Label. He has also won Third Prize at Watford International Piano Competition 2018 and First Prizes at the Springboard Concerto Competition in Brighton and the Worthing Concerto Competition.

He is grateful for the generous support by the Leathersellers’ Company, Deena Shypitka Music Award, Dewar Arts Awards, Phyllis Simons Award, the Guildhall School Trust and Christine Brown Trust.
