The Artists

Sasha Canter won the Brass Category Final of the 2022 BBC Young Musician competition. He went on to secure a place in the Grand Final at Bridgewater Hall, where he performed Alexander Arutunian’s Trumpet Concerto with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, televised by the BBC and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Recently, Sasha was a semi-finalist in the prestigious Aeolus International Competition for Wind Instruments in Düsseldorf. In 2022 he was also a finalist in the ‘Rizzardo Bino’ International Competition for young soloists in Italy. Sasha is in demand as a recitalist and soloist, having recently played the Haydn Concerto with the Rochester Symphony Orchestra and baroque concertos with the Taunton Sinfonietta. His recitals with his accompanist, Rustam Khanmurzin, at Proms at St Jude’s and Charlton House Friday concerts series and other venues, have been warmly received. In 2023/24 he will be appearing with the Isis Chamber Orchestra and Oxford Sinfonia playing the Hummel Trumpet Concerto, and will also be performing the Arutunian Concerto and Haydn Concerto in venues around the UK. Sasha was taught by Simon Munday until winning a full scholarship to study with Mark David at the Royal Academy of Music. He is also studying the baroque trumpet with Robert Farley. In May this year Sasha has been invited to give a recital tour of Switzerland. Sasha is grateful to the Young Classical Artists Trust for their generous support. Sasha also enjoys composing, arranging and performing with his trumpet ensemble Five By 5.

Rustam Khanmurzin is a Young Artist of The Musicians’ Company and the Oxford Lieder Festival, a former Constant and Kit Lambert Junior Fellow at Royal College of Music where he studied with Ian Jones and Kathron Sturrock. He appeared in a number of festivals with solo, chamber and concerto programmes all across Eurasia. His major awards include 1st Prize at RCM Concerto Competition 2019, 3rd Prize at Clamo International Piano Competition (Murcia, Spain) and Silver Medal of Asia-Pacific Chopin Piano Competition (Daegu, South Korea). Rustam’s recordings are available on Spotify, Apple Music, GooglePlay, Radio France Musique and several CDs of the legendary Melodiya label.
