Lillian Gordis, Harpsichord
December 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Hailed as a “Martha Argerich of the harpsichord” (ResMusica), Lillian regularly performs as a soloist in festivals across Europe and the United States and plays frequently in a duo with Jérôme Hantaï.
Her most recent album, a double-disc dedicated to Bach (Paraty Productions, 2022) was awarded a Diapason d’Or and has received praise in the press worldwide (Gramophone, Scherzo, American Record Guide, Fono Forum, Qobuz…). It was a “coup de cœur nouveauté” on France Musique (Relax !, Lionel Esparza) and was also featured on the program Le Bach du Dimanche (Corinne Schneider).
Her first solo recording, Zones (Paraty Productions, 2019) was entirely dedicated to the sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti.
2023 marks Lillian’s New York début at the Maison française NYU in the spring of 2023 during a 6-city US tour with J. Hantaï, and her début with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra at the Soraya Center, as well numerous performances across Europe.
Lillian holds dual nationality with the United States and France and resides in Paris. In the 2023-24 academic year, she will serve as Visiting Assistant Professor of Harpsichord at Oberlin Conservatory.
