Tiago Costa, a graduating student at GSMD with professor Bartosz Woroch, also performed the work in Porto

Portuguese violinist Tiago Costa performed Òscar’s work, Shpigl, in Porto and in London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, of which Òscar is an alumnus.

A commission from the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, Shpigl for solo violin (2016), was described by American composer John Adams as ‘a small masterpiece of both musical and dramatic imagination’. Impressed by the piece, Adams programmed Shpigl in the Los Angeles Philharmonic Green Umbrella Series  ‘Noon to Midnight’ festival, inviting Òscar to attend the American premiere in the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles.
