Marcel Zidani was born in London and studied Piano, under the direction of Mark Racz, at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
Marcel's music is described by BBC Radio 3 as 'a musical gem,' and 'his compositional style is comparable to that of Liszt, Satie and Chopin'. He recently received glowing reviews in the international press, describing the performance of compositions from his CD titled ‘A New Renaissance’ as ‘an explosion of expressive tonal colours’. His performance of Beethoven Sonata ‘The Tempest’ and Liszts ‘Un Sospiro’ received equal acclaim.
