Ivan Ilić

Enjoy Ivan performing a snippet from Haydn's Capriccio in G major, played on a stunning Shigeru Kawai piano.

 

Chloe Flower

What could be better than 20 minutes of relaxing piano covers from Ms Chloe Flower? She graces us with Ludovico Einaudi's Nuvole Bianche, Cyndi Lauper's True Colors, La La Land's Mia & Sebastian's Theme, and her own piece, Yellow Rose.

 

Mariam Batsashvili

Enjoy half an hour of pure bliss from the Georgian pianist. She plays pieces by Chopin, Liszt and Paderewski. Amongst them are pieces taken from her last album.

 

The Kanneh-Masons

What a talented family! The group of siblings were supposed to be performing at London's Royal Albert Hall this past week. However, it was cancelled due to the current coronavirus pandemic. 

Instead, Isata – who featured on the cover of issue 110 of Pianist – performed Beethoven's 3rd Piano Concerto at home alongside her siblings.
