It was the year 2013 when Ioana Cristina Goicea was a competitor in the MHIVC placing 5th, just missing out on the top prize. It was then that the stunning violinist vowed to return to NZ and win. And in 2017 she did just that. Now, justly proclaimed ‘ones to watch’, Ioana Cristina Goicea (performing on Sir Michael Hill's Guadagnini) and Sydney International Piano competition winner Andrey Gugnin are coming together for the first time in what will be a spellbinding evening of music making.
