When pianist Ivan Ilić announced his cd ‘Reicha Rediscovered’ was to be launched in Venice on 28/09/2017 at the magnificently restored Palazzetto Bru Zane, (Centre de Musique Romantique Française, San Polo) it was the catalyst that awakened my desire to attend this wonderful momentous occasion and to rediscover Venice!

‘Reicha Rediscovered’ is the first cd in a forthcoming series by Ivan and is released by Chandos; one of the world’s premiere classical record companies, produced by Swiss National Radio and supported by the Palazzetto Bru Zane. Antoine Reicha was a contemporary of Beethoven and many of his compositions unpublished, stored in France’s National Library.
