“He is one of greatest pianists alive today. Across the board, I do not know another pianist who could hold a candle to this magisterial keyboard player. Unsurpassed playing. An intellectual giant and mastercraftsman. Beyond words.” Michael Tumelty, The Glasgow Herald, October 2004
“Lill allows the music to emerge gloriously free of extra-musical association with intellectual clarity to have one listening to these glorious works afresh. A recording truly worthy of celebration.” Simon Hodges, International Piano, July / August 2004
John Lill’s concert career spans over fifty years. His rare talent emerged at an early age – he gave his first piano recital at the age of nine. His success was reflected in many prestigious international prizes and awards, and in 1970 he won the most coveted of these, the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition.
