Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recently praised by the New Yorker as an "adventurous pianist" who "likes his music on the brainy side,” Ivan Ili? is rapidly gaining a strong international reputation.

A disciple of the legendary François-René Duchâble, Ivan has earned support from the American Foundation in Paris, the Kari? Foundation in Belgrade, the University of Illinois, and the Nadia Boulanger Foundation in Paris. He recently completed a one-year residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts.

Ivan started music studies at age 6 and gave his recital debut at 11. He went on to take degrees in music and mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley before leaving for Paris with a fellowship

Shortly afterwards Ivan was admitted to the esteemed Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, where he took a Premier Prix in piano performance, followed by a Diplôme à l’Unanimité from the École Normale de Musique in Paris. At age 20 he launched a solo recital career that has taken him throughout Europe.

Ivan's playing is often broadcast on television and radio in America, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Serbia. The City of Paris sponsored his first recording.

Projects for 2008 included new works written for Ivan by Keeril Makan and Dmitri Tymoczko, a new recording of Debussy's Préludes, and multiple tours of France, Ireland, and Britain.

Over 60 solo engagements for 2007 included recital debuts in Boston, Washington, Dublin, Bristol, Glasgow, and Cardiff, in addition to festivals throughout Europe. In June 2008 Ivan gave his Carnegie Hall recital debut; his Wigmore Hall début will take place in July 2009.
