Octavian's CV

I was born on 03.02.2001 in Brasov, Romania.
My parents: Pirlea Ionel prime clarinetist at Brasov opera, Pirlea Maria engineer
I have a younger brother Pirlea Pavel-Adrian student at the Music High School "Tudor Ciortea" Brasov, he is also studying the violin

EDUCATION
I started my career when I was 6 years old with piano but, at the advice of my parents I tried to study violin too. Later, I understood that the violin was the right instrument for me. So, I treated it well and at the age of 8 I held my first solo concert with the Symphonic Orchestra of the Brasov Philharmonic.
I have started to study violin at "Tudor Ciortea" Music High School and at the age of 12, starting from 2014, I attended the National Art College "Dinu Lipatti”, Bucharest. As it can be seen, I obtained good grades at the final national exams from 2015-2016.
At the age of 15 I attended the Summer Music Academy, Sinaia 2016 Master Class, where I was appreciated by Mr. Remus Azoitei and Mr. Charles Sewart. They encouraged me to apply at The Purcell School (in London) for a scholarship and of course, I followed up this advice. At this moment I’m a student at The Purcell School.

VIOLIN MASTERCLASS
I participated in master classes under the guidance of high-class teachers such as: Tatiana Anatolgevna Polozova, Alexandru Gavrilovici, Evgenia Chugaeva, George Tudorache, Mihaela Martin, Charles Sewart, Remus Azoitei, Alina Ibraginova,
Alexandru Tomescu

P
Pirlea

Since I started practicing and having lesson with him, I developed beyond my expectations! I have my repertorie well organized and the way of how I feel and think the music had changed dramaticlly and I did manage to be a finalist into a international violin competition. I highly recommend Octav as his brother to give it a try!

C
Clara

I would definitely recommend Octavian as a violin teacher, as he has got extremely talented skills and communicates really well the music around him. Not only his numerous experiences as a a soloist with orchestra bring him to a high standard of mastering the violin, but he also knows how to transmit his passion, in order to bring the best out of his students.
