Described as one of the leading pianists of his generation, John Lill’s career spans over 55 years, during which time he has given over 4,000 concerts. Lill studied at the Royal College of Music and with Wilhelm Kempff and at 18 performed Rachmaninov’s third piano concerto under Sir Adrian Boult, immediately followed by his much- acclaimed London début at the Royal Festival
Hall. In 1970 he won the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition. Since then he has given concerts in over fifty countries.

John Lill’s repertoire includes more than eighty concertos, and he is acclaimed as a leading interpreter of Beethoven, whose complete sonata cycle he has performed in the UK, USA and Japan. In Britain he regularly appears with all the major symphony orchestras. Lill has been awarded many Honorary Doctorates and Fellowships from British Universities, Colleges and Academies. He was awarded the OBE in 1977 and the CBE for his services to music in the 2005 New Year’s Honours’ List.
