Margarita Simonova was born in Krasnodar, south of Russia to the third generation of musicians. Margarita started her music career when she barely turned four.
She graduated from the Shostakovich Music school,ass of the distinguished Professor I. Ridel. Her talent brought her very young to the stage of many national and international competitions where she many times became a laureate.
The city of Kalinigrad, ex-Königsberg – a Russian enclave on the Baltic sea- has an old European culture with impressive catholic churches and a beautiful Cathedral, where Margarita was attracted by the sound of organ. She learned to play this instrument, which developed her love for Baroque music, especially the music of J.S.Bach that she now masters on piano in her distinguished manner.
She moved to Brussels in 2003 where she continued her study at the Royal Conservatory with great pianists as Segrey Leschenko, Dominique Cornil, Alexander Madzar, Piet Kuijken and Frans Van Beveren from Lemmensinstituut of Leuven.
Margarita is a frequent performing guest in many renowned stages in Belgium and Europe.
