We open our season with a performance by this supreme artist and musician at the height of her power.
Lilya Zilberstein won the Busoni Competition in 1987, after which the first prize was not even awarded for another five years.
Zilberstein regularly appears with major orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to name just a few, and has collaborated with conductors Claudio Abbado, Gustavo Dudamel, James Levine, and Michael Tilson Thomas, among many others.
Her recitals take place in major music centres the world over, and she performs solo recitals as well as in chamber music performances with Martha Argerich and Maxim Vengerov. A prolific recording artist, Zilberstein has recorded 20 albums for Deutsche Grammophon, and on EMI Classics. She also contributed to Deutsche Grammophon’s recordings of the complete works of Chopin, released in 1999. More recently, her recording of Brahms’ Sonata for two pianos with Martha Argerich was released on EMI Classics.
We are overjoyed that we finally managed to invite Ms. Zilberstein back to Vancouver, and that she has included Vancouver as one of the stops of her very busy international touring schedule in 2023.

“Its youthful zest (Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 3) was displayed to the hilt by Zilberstein…more impressive was the graceful, almost effortless navigation of the music’s maddening alternation of the fast and furious with the soulfully lyrical.” (Chicago Tribune)
“Zilberstein’s world-class pianism positively glitters.” (Classics Today)
