A student of François-René Duchâble, Ivan started music studies at the age of 6. His newest CD (2012) features the complete Chopin Studies for the left hand by Leopold Godowsky, a veritable tour-de-force of musicianship and virtuosity. The recording, described as “a major achievement” and “breathtaking” by BBC Radio 3, was the The Daily Telegraph’s CD of the Week and a Top 5 CD of MDR Figaro in Germany and Classique News in France.
