Diana has recently recorded her first CD, featuring works by Haydn, Chopin and Ravel, after winning 1st Prize in the Concours d'aide aux Jeunes Artistes organised by the Festival du Vexin

Born in Tarbes (France) to a British father and a French-Spanish mother, Diana is currently settled in London, studying at the Royal College of Music in London on an Artist Diploma programme, in Norma Fisher’s class. She won 3rd Prize at the Chappell Medal Competition at RCM and has recently been selected to join the Talent Unlimited charity as well as the Kirckman Concert Society promoting young talented musicians and offering them concerts in London. She is, in parallel, on a second Artist Diploma course at the Conservatoire de Paris (CNSMDP), where she formerly studied with Jean-François Heisser and Marie-Josèphe Jude and graduated with a Master’s degree in 2018. While in Paris, she also spent three years studying with the renowned Rena Shereshevskaya at the École Normale de Musique, and in 2022 joined the new season of the Académie Musicale Philippe Jaroussky, perfecting her skills with Cédric Thiberghien.

Diana is generously supported by the Fondation de la Banque Populaire, the Fondation Safran and the Kathleen Trust.

Following her pre-selection in 2021 for the prestigious Chopin Competition in Warsaw, she was invited the following summers by Philippe Giusiano to take part in masterclasses in Katowice as well as concerts at the Chopin Manor in Duszniki organised by the Chopin Foundation.
