About This Performance

Making his PCMS debut, Ilya Poletaev enjoys a multifaceted career as both a classically trained pianist and as a performer on early keyboards. A pianist with an inquisitive mind, he embraces a wide range of repertoire choices and performance practices ranging from the 16th to the 21st century. The Philadelphia Inquirer recently praised Poletaev’s Kimmel Center debut as an “interpretation of considerable individuality” demonstrating “lively imagination” and “unfailingly gorgeous tone.”
