About Award

Being faithful to founder Aloys Fleischmann’s wish to support and promote young musicians, last season Cork Orchestral Society marked its 80th year by establishing the COS Emerging Artist Award, a new award to be given annually to a full-time CIT Cork School of Music student who, in the opinion of their mentors, has distinguished themselves in performance and typifies the high standards nurtured in the School. Each year the awardee will have a recital programmed as part of a COS concert season. The recipient of the inaugural COS Emerging Artist Award, pianist Jordan Bagot, is a twenty-two year old rising star already honoured by multiple accolades in Ireland and abroad.


About Jordan Bagot : 

Completed his studies as the highest-placed final year student of the Bachelor of Music programme in the CIT Cork School of Music. He then went on to an MA in Performance degree, graduating with first class honours in October 2018.  During his time in CSM, he studied with Mary Beattie and Gabriela Mayer. Most recently, he was awarded the ‘Cork Orchestral Society “Emerging Artist” Award’ as its inaugural recipient.
He has received masterclasses from world-renowned pianists such as John O’Conor, Pascal Devoyon, Barry Douglas, John Lill, Philip Martin, Pavel Nersessian, Pierre Goy, Ewa Poblocka, Sergey Schepkin, Finghin Collins and Jean-Bernard Pommier.
In 2017, Jordan won first prize at both the 2017 Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe Scholarship Award and the Morris Grant Bursary at Feis Ceoil. He was the winer of the Mabel Swainson Competition in 2018 and will be making his debut at the National Concert Hall in Dublin in May as a result. He has also featured at the Clandeboyne Festival as a solo pianist last summer.
Jordan has enjoyed performing around Ireland, both solo and with orchestra, while completing his MA in performance in the CSM. He was invited to play at the UCH “Rising Stars” inaugural concert in Limerick, in April 2017, and also took part in the RDS “Rising Stars” Concert in May 2016. Jordan was awarded the Brennan Prize for “the most promising musician” in the 2015 Irish Freemasons’ Young Musician of the Year competition, and a finalist in the subsequent year.
Whilst familiarising himself with the classical repertoire, Jordan has also maintained an avid interest in the performance of new works, recording C.S.L Parker’s Three Books of Miniatures for piano duet last summer. Next year, Jordan and the composer will record a further 3 Books of Miniatures to whom Jordan is the dedicatee.
