In 1993, she won first prize at the Rubinstein International Young Pianist Competition in Poland. She won first prize at the Rachmaninov Piano Competition in Moscow in 1997. Since that time, Igoshina has won numerous additional prizes in worldwide piano competitions, including: Second Prize at the Atlanta International Competition (2002), Georgia First Prize - Concorso Internazionale Pianistico “Guiliano Pecar” (2002), Italy Laureate of "Queen Elisabeth Competition" in Brussels (2003) Second Prize at the Jose Iturbi International Piano Competitions (2006), Spain Regarding the Atlanta Competition, reviewer Keely Brown wrote: "Russian pianist Valentina Igoshina played Chopin's Preludes with heartbreaking nuance.

Those who doubt Chopin's intentions to have all 24 played at one sitting would have had their doubts dispelled by hearing how she subtly strung them together, with perfect control and dynamic shading and phrasing. It was the artistic performance of the day. Her Rachmaninov B-flat Minor Sonata was likewise idiomatic and meltingly phrased. Igoshina's performance showed the difference between being a good pianist and being an artist." (Creative Loafing Media) In 2005 Valentina Igoshina performed at the Glazunov Hall of the St.

Petersburg, Russia, Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory. After the performance, reviewer Wayne Lee Gay wrote that Igoshina "created the greatest impression of the day in an early evening program that opened with Beethoven's Sonata in E-flat, Opus 27, No 1. While the snow swirled outside, Igoshina warmed up the auditorium with a vision that was majestically solid and underpinned with a constant sense of a drama unfolding. Moving on to the more passionate literature of the romantic era, she displayed a beautiful, mellow tone to launch Chopin's Ballade in F Minor imbuing this standard favorite with an aura of narration, like a tale told by fireside.

Her moppish brown hair flying, she moved on to the unadulterated showmanship of Liszt's Rapsodie Espagnole once again proving her dramatic gifts by finding a solid structure in this showpiece and producing a wonderfully rich quality of tone while finding constant moments of suspense and surprise."
