NEW TWISTS

MALCOLM MILLER listens to
American pianist John Robilette

 

The American pianist John Robilette is a musician of engaging individuality, with a tellingly attractive piano tone and idiosyncratic interpretative approach. While his pianistic influences derive from his early training in Europe with former assistants to Cortot and Schnabel, he also displays musical entrepreneurship. He has commissioned numerous piano works from leading American composer such as Lukas Foss and George Perle and devised the state-sponsored 'Artistic Ambassadorial Program' to promote American musicians around the world. It was this blend of intriguing musical idiosyncrasy and outlook that captivated the somewhat slender yet enthusiastic audience at his recital at London's St John's Smith Square on 10 June 2001.
