Andrei Iliushkin (piano): The Musicians’ Company #MiddayMusic

Andrei Iliushkin joined the Musicians' Company Young Artists' Programme after he was awarded our Carnwath Piano Scholarship in 2018. Here he performs Bach's Prelude and Fugue in C sharp minor (book 2). Andrei says: "I have been performing as a soloist in various renowned concert halls throughout the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, Japan, Norway and the UK, as well as collaborating with orchestras of London, Moscow, Rostov, Yaroslavl and Shenzhen. Following my London debut on stage at Wigmore Hall in October 2015 as a finalist of the Jaques Samuel Piano Competition, I gave a recital at the prestigious St. Martin-in-the-Fields as the winner of the Intercollegiate Beethoven Piano Competition, as well as various concerto performances at St. John’s Smith Square. When I was in the preparation process to record this video, the time I was going through wasn’t very uplifting or encouraging. The genius of this piece helped me get through it then, hopefully it’ll be helpful now!" -------------------------------------------------- Musicians' Company Profile - About our Carnwath Piano Scholarship - Andrei's Website - Andrei's Facebook - Andrei's Instagram - Andrei's YouTube - -------------------------------------------------- Join our weekly #MiddayMusic e-news at #MiddayMusic is supported by funds from the Musicians' Company’s Prince’s Prize which received a generous endowment in 2015 from The Eranda Rothschild Foundation and Rothschilds Bank, in memory of Leopold de Rothschild, a Liveryman of the Musicians’ Company for over 50 years.
