Jobanshi – neutral lanscapes

written by Ittai Rosenbaum

Running a marathon is a feat; pianist Ivan Ilić has decided to run an ultra-marathon. Chopin’s Etudes for piano are among the most demanding piano works in the classical repertoire; Leopold Godowsky’s reworking of the etudes requires an even more accomplished technique.

Ilić chose the most challenging of Godowsky’s work for his new CD: the twenty two Studies for the left hand alone. The rich and elaborate compositions by Godowsky along with Ilić’s virtuosic performance make the Studies sound as if played by two hands.
