Conversations with Ilya Maximov
Time & Location
About the Event
We are thrilled to have Ilya Maximov, an award-winning pianist, currently based in Austria and Poland, speak to us about the Russian Piano School, drawing upon his own heritage growing up in Russia. Ilya will disseminate the impulses and roots of the Russian tradition and reference the professors and composers that had an enormous impact on Russian technique and style such as A. Arensky, S. Taneyev, N. Rimsky-Korsakov, V. Safonov, A. Goldenweiser, H. Neuhaus, and many others. He will play excerpts to illustrate his points and will bring his perspectives to bear on understanding the Russian Masters with their unique sounds. As Ilya is currently teaching at Universitat Mozarteum Salzburg as an assistant to Professor Pavel Gililov, we will certainly benefit from his broad knowledge of music, pianistic excellence, and performance experiences. A short bio is provided at the end of this posting and his website is at http://ilyamaximov.com
