Magnetic, easy-going and delightfully articulate, Canadian pianist Ian Parker captivates audiences wherever he goes. An enthusiastic recitalist, he has performed across the United States, Western Europe, Israel and throughout Canada on tours with Debut Atlantic and Jeunesses Musicales du Canada. A stunning performance by both soloist and the London Symphony Orchestra.

“Parker has just the right deft touch and insouciance to show this most entertaining of [Stravinsky's] works in its best light, especially the last movement, redolent of some vaudeville routine.”
“The Stravinsky...is the most satisfying performance here, punchy, expressive and vital, full of wit, fantasy and the spirit of the dance. Parker finds much character in the music and brings it off with style, with the LSO and Francis pointing and complementing to great effect.”
