Ilya Poletaev is no stranger to Toronto. He has performed on our stage in the past and has played with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
At the age of six, he started studying in Moscow. He moved to Israel and eventually came to Canada when he was 14. He obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto and then went on to complete his Masters and Doctorate at Yale. He is an accomplished and award-winning pianist and harpsichordist.
He was part of the faculty at Yale between 2005 and 2010 as a lecturer in Early Music. In 2011, he became the Assistant Professor of Piano at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montréal, a position he still holds today.
Join us on February 7, 2017 when Ilya Poletaev takes to our stage to play Bach, Enescu, and Schumann. http://music-toronto.com/piano/poletaev.htm
