Serbian-American pianist Ivan Ilić is based in France since 2001, following graduate studies at the Paris Conservatory. His last CD, ‘The Transcendentalist’ (2014) draws a connection between Alexander Scriabin miniatures and late Morton Feldman, with detours in early John Cage and a Feldmanesque new work by Scott Wollschleger. The album was selected as a Critic's Choice by BR Klassik (DE), Swiss Radio Espace 2 (CH), Listen Magazine (US), and Classiquenews (FR). It was CD of the month of Sinfini Music (UK) and TGV Magazine (FR), won a Supersonic Award from Pizzicato Magazine (LU), and garnered 5-star reviews from Harmonie Magazine (CZ) and Aachener Zeitung (DE). In November 2014 the album was nominated for the International Classical Music Awards for Album of the Year.
