Ian Fountain (Piano)

In 1989 Ian Fountain became the youngest winner of the Artur Rubinstein Piano Masters Competition in Tel Aviv at the age of nineteen.

Since then he has performed extensively throughout Europe, the USA, the UK and the Far East, appearing with orchestras such as the London Symphony and Sir Colin Davis, the Israel Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta and the Czech Philharmonic and Jiri Belohlavek. He has also performed with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic, the Hallй Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Singapore Symphony and the Utah Symphony among many others. In Moscow he was invited to open the 1992–93 season of the Moscow Conservatoire, and in Poland he marked the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Chopin’s death by playing both Chopin Concertos in Krakow.

As recitalist, he has performed at major venues in New York, Chicago, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Jerusalem. He is a regular guest at international festivals in Prague, Berlin, Schleswig-Holstein, Bucharest (Enescu Festival) and Kuhmo.

An avid chamber musician, he enjoys many long-standing partnerships with musicians such as David Geringas, Ulf Hoelscher and the Mandelring and Emperor Quartets, performing in concerts and festivals throughout Europe, Japan and Korea. He has also recently undertaken several performances as conductor, leading from the keyboard.

Performances this season include concerts with the Hungarian Philharmonic and ZoltAn Kocsis in Budapest, the Enescu Philharmonic and Cristian Mandeal in Bucharest, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and Paavo Jдrvi in Japan, the London Chamber Orchestra, the Israel Chamber Orchestra and the Armenian Philharmonic in Yerevan.

Ian Fountain has made several critically acclaimed recordings, of 20th century piano sonatas for EMI, Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations for CRD Records and the complete works of Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Mendelssohn for Hдnssler Classics with David Geringas.

In 2008 he collaborated on an edition of Beethoven Sonatas for Piano and Cello for G. Henle Verlag (Munich).

Since 2001 Ian Fountain has been a professor of piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
