"When pianist John Lill takes to the stage you are instantly aware of a magnetic presence. He enters with a dignified calm, unpretentious, a man with a single mission. The delivery is profound yet contained. His focus is within the music, never on himself. His objective is always to serve the composer."
The Scotsman, November 2015
"John Lill is, without a doubt, one of the finest pianists at work today and his undemonstrative appearance on the stage belies a fiercely passionate and romantic temperament."
Seen and Heard International, October 2010
Arguably Britain's most well known pianist who has recently celebrated his 70th birthday with a highly acclaimed complete Beethoven Sonata Cycle at London's Cadogan Hall and Manchester's Bridgewater Hall, first came to international attention when he won the coveted Tchaikovsky award in Moscow in 1970. Known for his aristocratic interpretations of Beethoven and the great masters of the nineteenth and twentieth century piano repertoire, John Lill performs all over the world and was awarded a CBE in the 2005 New Year's Honours List.
