“I’ve been working with the brilliant young pianist, Rebeca Omordia. She is half Romanian, half Nigerian – and it’s a powerful combination! … Rebeca’s technique knows no bounds but, more importantly, she plays with a depth of insight and understanding which is all too rare today.” Julian Lloyd Webber, London Magazine

London based award-winning pianist Rebeca Omordia was born in Romania to a Romanian mother and a Nigerian father. Having begun to establish a profile in her native country, she moved to the UK to study at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and later at Trinity College of Music in London.

Recently featured on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Nigerian-Romanian pianist Rebeca Omordia is known as a vibrant, exciting virtuoso throughout the UK and overseas. A strong advocate of Nigerian classical music, Rebeca’s CD Ekele released in 2018, was described as an “appealing album” (BBC Music Magazine), “fascinating programme “(Gramophone Magazine) and “beautifully delivered recital” (The Sunday Times).

In 2019 she launched in partnership with the Institute of Art and Music the first ever African Concert Series at the October Gallery in London, described by the BBC as “the African Art Music makes a comeback”.

She has collaborated with an array of musicians, including a three year- partnership with renowned British cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. Further collaborations include international artists such as cellist Raphael Wallfisch, the Chineke! Chamber Ensemble, double bass virtuoso Leon Bosch; her CD with pianist Mark Bebbington, “The Piano Music of Ralph Vaughan Williams” reached no. 3 in the UK’s Specialist Classical Music Chart.
