Ian Hobson in the Complete Piano Works of Debussy and Ravel at SubCulture


45 Bleeker Street, NYC 10012

The immensely versatile and renowned pianist Ian Hobson, whose playing has been described by Gramophone as “intensely alive to expressive nuance, textural clarity and elastic shaping,” will perform a six-recital cycle of the complete solo piano works of Debussy and Ravel at New York’s downtown venue SubCulture over the course of six months, from November 2017 to April 2018.  All recitals take place on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm.

Mr. Hobson’s recitals will explore Debussy’s revolutionary quest to reach beyond traditional harmonic means to portray people and nature in an ambiguous yet still immediate reality; as well as Ravel’s brilliant, sometimes darkly-menacing solo piano works which tease the imagination with skillfully wrought intimations of spooky fairy tales, faraway places, and Gothic fantasies.
