A popular visitor to the Lanntair stage, pianist Ivan Ilic returns this Autumn to present a recital of nocturnal music, featuring works by Chopin, Tchaïkovsky, and Fauré amongst others.
Ivan enjoys a unique place in today’s musical landscape, thanks to his unconventional repertoire and multifaceted approach. His combination of accessible presentation and adventurous programming has allowed him to develop a worldwide following.
His latest project – a 5-CD project for Chandos Records of Reicha’s piano music – led to feature articles in the New York Times and countless music publications; with BBC Music Magazine commenting: “In this pianist, Reicha’s music has the best possible advocate.”
And his newest recording (August 2019) presents a premiere of piano transcriptions of Haydn symphonies, and highlighted as Classic FM’s ‘CD of the Week’.
Ivan’s Autumn visit to the Western Isles will also include teaching and workshops with local schoolchildren.
