ILYA POLETAEV


Ilya Poletaev leads a multifaceted career as both a classically trained pianist and as a performer on early keyboards. A musician with an inquisitive mind who explores repertoire from the sixteenth to the present century, Poletaev has performed extensively in Europe, Canada, Russia, and the United States both as a soloist, chamber musician, and continuo player.

Mr. Poletaev began studying in Moscow at the age of six and continued his studies in Israel until he moved to Canada at the age of 14. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto, where he studied with pianist Marietta Orlov and harpsichordist Colin Tilney, as well as a doctorate from Yale, where he studied with Boris Berman. In the spring of 2011 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Piano at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montréal.
