Hector Leung: Piano

Pianist Hector Leung was born in Hong Kong and is the founder of the newly established piano chamber group Etermusica based in Manchester, UK. Amongst Hector’s very early achievements are his winning first prize at the Hong Kong International Pianist Association piano competition (HKIPA) in 2013 and a number of youth piano competitions around that year.

Graduating from Royal Northern College of Music in 2017, Hector obtained his Masters in Music (majoring in solo piano performance) and FRSM Diploma with distinctions.

His main piano tutors were Dina Parakhina and Colin Stone. Having won best accompanist prizes for two song cycle competitions in 2015, both during the first term of his MMus studies, Hector was then nominated one of the RNCM Songsters pianists, and collaborated closely with the School of Vocal Studies and Opera.

Hector is on a new mission to create his own compositions to further his studies and to extend his concert repertoire
