It was already a well-known fact that Siberia was a hotbed of violinists – think of all the disciples of Zakhar Bron, starting with Vengerov and Repin! – it is obviously also a breeding gro and for pianists. The young Roman Borisov is a fine example of this. Born in 2002 in Novosibirsk, he has already excelled in a dozen or so competitions and today benefits from prestigious support, including that of the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation and pianist Denis Matsuev.
