Described as the leading pianist of his generation, John Lill joins us for a technically challenging programme of key works for solo piano from the turning point between the Classical and Romantic periods. Lill has enjoyed an enviable career, from his beginnings as an eighteen year old performing Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto under Sir Adrian Boult whilst at the Royal College of Music, to most recently performing the complete cycle of Beethoven piano sonatas at the Cadogan and Bridgewater halls in celebration of this, his seventieth birthday year.
