John Lill is a familiar face to Classical Music Alive audiences, most recently as soloist with various orchestras, but it is some time since we welcomed him to The Concert Hall as a solo recitalist. Unanimously described as one of the leading pianists of his generation, John Lill’s career spans over 55 years, during which time he has given over 4000 concerts.

In Britain John has given over 25 London Promenade concerts and regularly appears with all the major symphony orchestras. He has toured overseas with the London Symphony, London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, City of Birmingham, Hallé, Royal Scottish National and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestras.

John’s extensive repertoire includes more than eighty concertos, and he is acclaimed in particular as a leading interpreter of Beethoven, whose complete sonata cycle he has performed on several occasions in the UK, USA and Japan. We are delighted that he is bringing a selection of those to us for this concert.
