To celebrate the importance of the arts to health and wellbeing Ivan will perform in the downstairs cafe area in the Causeway Hospital.
Ivan is the Ulster University International Musician in Residence. He is a Serbian-American trailblazing classical pianist and thanks to his personal charisma and unusual approach to repertoire, he has succeeded in creating a unique place in the classical music world.
In addition to his solo recital tours and performing in a range of venues across the world including Carnegie Hall in New York. Ivan has written and presented video documentaries, co-produced in-depth radio programmes for Swiss Radio, and written articles for Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine, and other prestigious publications.
Ivan studied music and mathematics at the University of California Berkeley, before moving to Paris on a fellowship and finishing his studies at the Paris Conservatoire and Ecole Normale. His CDs are widely broadcast across six continents and have earned him praise from every major classical music publication. Lauded for his “restless, inquiring mind” by International Piano, it is Ivan’s efforts to contextualize the repertoire he plays which set him apart. His recent series for Chandos entitled “Reicha Rediscovered” has brought him a new level of recognition, including a recent feature article in the New York Times
