Paris-based American pianist Ivan Ilic completes his critically acclaimed worldwide tour of “mesmerizing” piano recitals at MIT’s Killian Hall for a special one-night only, free performance. In an effort to promote young American composers, Ilic showcases the U.S. premieres of Afterglow by Keeril Makan, Assistant Professor of Music at MIT, and Búgi Wúgi by Argentine-American composer Fernando Benadon. In addition, the program includes eight of Debussy’s Preludes from Book 2; Chopin’s Polonaise-Fantasy, Opus 61; and excerpts from Liszt’s “Years of Pilgrimage”: the Sonnet N. 47, and the Dante Sonata.
