One of the most significant musicians to emerge from Ireland in recent times, Finghin Collins was born in Dublin in 1977 and studied with John O'Conor at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and with Dominique Merlet at the Geneva Conservatoire. He established his international reputation by winning the 1999 Clara Haskil International Piano Competition and has since performed with leading orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
