World famous pianist at Lincoln Performing Arts Centre
John Lill CBE Britain's most eminent and respected pianist will take to the stage at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC) this Sunday (6 September).

John Lill CBE will be delighting audiences with music from an illustrious list of composers at the venue on the University of Lincoln’s Brayford campus. He will be performing Haydn's Piano Sonata No 52, Schumann's 'Carnival de Vienne' Op 26, Prokofiev's Toccata Op 11, Brahms' 3 Intermezzi, Op 117 and Beethoven's Sonata in F minor 'Appassionata' Op 57.

Lill, who recently celebrated his 60th birthday with a series of concerts throughout the UK, first came to international attention when he won the coveted Tchaikovsky award in Moscow in 1970. Since then his huge international career has been based on his commanding performances of the most challenging cornerstones of the classical and romantic piano repertoire.

The concert, which starts at 4pm, is part of the LPAC's International Piano Series bringing big name musical talent to Lincoln. Later in the series, the LPAC stage will welcome piano prodigies such as Jin Ju, Noriko Ogawa and Martin Roscoe.

Artistic Director Graham Oppenheimer said: "We are delighted to welcome such a celebrated musician for the opening concert of our new world class series. John Lill's performance at the LPAC is an unmissable experience for classical music lovers everywhere."

Tickets for John Lill are still available priced between £12 and £15 (£10 - £12 concessions) from the Engine Shed and LPAC Box Office, open Monday to Friday from 10am - 4pm, Brayford Wharf East, Lincoln.
