This is our 21st season of presenting exceptional international artists and offering them to the South Florida community. Many of our past finds have gone on to achieve major careers and world-wide acclaim. Ilya Itin is such an artist, one who has been widely celebrated as a performer and educator.
“Itin’s is a rare and exciting artistry indeed…poised, pure, and ravishing in its range of color, His playing is a prime example of a superb technique put at the service of an inquiring and imaginative mind.” (Daily Telegraph)
Audiences throughout the world revere Ilya Itin’s unique artistry. Playing to sold out houses in Japan and in the US, he is known for his extraordinary range, power, quality of sound and command of the piano. His Princeton recital was singled out by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a “top ten musical moment of the year”, and the New York Times critic described him as: “…a brilliantly insightful pianist who offered a superb recital.” Since capturing the Gold Medal, BBC Audience Award, and Contemporary Music Prize at the 1996 Leeds International Piano Competition, Ilya Itin has performed throughout the world bringing his powerful musical imagination and mastery to wide ranging repertoire.
