(CUL) TURKISH CONSERVATORY STUDENT'S INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS.

ANKARA, Apr 19, 2010 (TUR) -- A Turkish conservatory student has achieved a remarkable success in an international piano contest.

Tugrul Adiloglu, a 12th grade student from Ankara's Hacettepe State Conservatory, participated in an international piano contest named after the legendary Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov, held in the German city of Frankfurt between April 6-11.

Competing with pianists from 60 countries, Turkish pianist Adiloglu ranked the 6th in the "2nd International Rachmaninov Piano Competition".

In 2009, Adiloglu was also ranked the 3rd in the "Pera International Piano Competition" held in Turkey.

Sergei Rachmaninov, born in April 1873, was a Russian composer, pianist and conductor.

He was one of the finest pianists of his day, and as a composer, very nearly the last great representative of Russian late Romanticism in classical music.

The piano features prominently in Rachmaninov's compositional output, either as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble.
