John Lill’s concert career spans over 55 years. He gave his first piano recital at the age of nine and at eighteen he made his London début playing Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto with Sir Adrian Boult conducting. His many awards include first prize at the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1970. Unanimously described as the leading British pianist of his generation, John Lill has performed all over the world, working with many of its finest orchestras and conductors. His extensive repertoire exceeds 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 Britain, the United States and Japan. He has given many concerts in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe, Russia, Japan and Australia, and has recorded for Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, ASV, Chandos, Conifer and Nimbus Records, including the complete concertos of Beethoven, Brahms, the complete sonatas of Beethoven and Prokofiev and all of the concertos and major solo works of Rachmaninov. He has been awarded many Honorary Doctorates from British Universities and Fellowships from the leading music Colleges and Academies, and was awarded the OBE in 1978 and the CBE in 2005 for his services to music.
