Enjoy this excerpt of the overview of IKIF 2017 from the current issue (Nov/Dec) of the American Record Guide, written by James Harrington:

"Two Weeks of Annual Piano Heaven"

Rose gave the opening concert on a Sunday evening, as he has done each of the past seasons. He is present for every event over the next two weeks. Indefatigable even at 79, his gregarious personality coupled with a still impressive big romantic piano style and over 50 years as a teacher make it easy to understand his success with IKIF. I was reminded of learning a lot of Liszt repertoire back in the 1970s from his Vox Box recordings, and then attending his all-Liszt recital back in 1986 on Liszt’s 175th birthday at Alice Tully Hall. This year he played Beethoven’s Sonata No. 18, Schumann’s Fantasy Pieces Op. 12, and Liszt’s Sonata—a demanding program for someone half his age. I remember Liszt’s Sonata as the high point of his recital 31 years ago, as it was again in July. There is so much in this piece that can distract the pianist’s overall conception, but Rose is a master with Liszt’s music, and I heard all the motivic transformations clearly. Yet the work moved right along, keeping my attention so well that all of a sudden we were at the fugue, then the presto octaves, and then the final heavenly pages. He offered no encore; only his heartfelt thanks to the audience for their attendance and his hope that they would return all through the festival.

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG FESTIVAL

Both participants and listeners will find something special at New
York City's irrepressible and irreplaceable International Keyboard
Institute and Festival, as founder Jerome Rose tells Inge Kjemtrup.

Talk to Jerome Rose, pianist and founder of the
International Keyboard Institute and Festival, and he
will give it to you straight: 'The festival is in its 18th
year, and we're a staple of New York City musical life.'
This might sound like brash New Yorker attitude,
but he's probably right: critics and audiences seem to
have taken this two-week long festival of all things
piano to their hearts. The International Keyboard
Institute and Festival (IKIF) is a 'perennial favorite
among piano aficionados' said the New York Times,
while the New Yorker pointed up the IKIF's
'tantalizingly, innovative and robust concert programs
from a variety of international virtuosos, up-and-comers,
and local heroes.'

Indeed, by all reports, a large part of the appeal
of the IKIF is this annual coming together of
established performers, the young-and-up-and-coming
(several recent competition winners, such as
George Li, who was a laureate in the Tchaikovsky,
will take part this year), amateurs and general piano
nuts. The variety of ages helps too, ranging from 12
to 80, says festival director Julie Kedersha.

It's Kedersha's challenging job to keep tabs on the
125 participants and 20-30 teaching staff, who
collectively take over the music department of New
York City's Hunter College every July. Her task must
be made harder by what Rose calls the 'open door
policy' of the IKIF . 'You're not assigned to any
teacher, you can study with anyone,' he explains.
'You can walk in and out of a room if you want.'
Though presumably not in the middle of your lesson.

Rose claims his programming comes from telling
the guest artists, 'play better than you did at Carnegie
Hall and play whatever you want', an approach that
does lead to some diversity — and some playfulness.
Rose persuaded concert pianist Dmitry Rachmanov
to present a programme about Sergei Rachmaninov
(no relation) and he put together an orchestral
ensemble for the festival and dubbed it the Jäger
Meisters Chamber Orchestra ('Jäger' means 'hunter'
in German). I'll drink to that.

More seriously though, Rose is keen to fête the
great keyboard masters of the past and present,
including those whose careers have, perhaps, deserved
more attention. This year the IKIF features the
French pianist Philippe Entremont, 75 years and
basking in the light of a long career of French music
and Chopin. Rose also has tributes to past keyboard
masters such as Paderewski and Gilels.

Entremont's recital (23 July) will be heavy on
Chopin and French works, including Ravel's Sonatine
and 'Alborada del gracioso' from Miroirs. Geoffrey
Burleson, who is recording Saint-Saens's piano music
for Naxos offers a diverse recital with music by that
composer. Other confirmed recitals so far are from
Stanislav Khristenko, Jeffrey Swann and Magdalena
Baczewska, with Rose himself on the opening-night spot.

Rose has had a distinguished teaching and
performing career (as a youngster in California he
studied with Adolph Baller, mainly recalled now as
Menuhin's pianist). He was a young man when the
idea of the festival came to him: ‘When I was 17
going on 18, I had a transformative experience going
to Marlboro [the famous Vermont chamber music
festival], played with Casals and Sascha Schneider,
and I wanted to create a similar thing in the piano
world.’ Rose, it seems, is in his element with IKIF.

If the concerts and classes aren't enough, Rose
adds, there are also the 'beautiful acoustics' of the
Hunter College concert hall, the many available
practice rooms, the Yamahas and Bösendorfers on
tap, and the interesting lectures. By the end of my
phone call with Rose, I'm nearly ready to reserve my
place on his big city, big passion piano fest.

The New York International Keyboard Institute and
Festival runs 17-31 July. To apply as a participant or to
