Now in its 11th year, the Hattori Foundation Rush Hour Recital series again features an exciting line-up of current award-winners and its illustrious alumni of recipients from the Foundation's 27 year history of supporting exceptional musical talent.

Andrei Iliushkin (current senior award winner) is currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London, with professor emeritus Christopher Elton. He is the winner of many International competitions in Russia, Italy and the USA.

Andrei has had the opportunity to perform as a soloist with symphonic orchestras of Moscow, Rostov and Yaroslavl. In 2009 and 2011 he was invited to give recitals in Norway. In recognition of his achievements Andrei was honoured to give a recital in Tchaikovsky’s house and play the piano of Tchaikovsky.

As a scholar of Vladimir Spivakov Charity Foundation Andrei had concerts in Holland (Peter the Great Festival, 2013 and 2014), in Germany (ClaviCologne Piano Festival), participated in Baikal Christmas Festival (Russia, 2014). In October 2015 Andrei had an opportunity to play a recital at the Wigmore Hall, London, as a finalist of Jaques Samuel Piano Competiton. In August 2016 Andrei played in pre-selections of the Feruccio Busoni Piano competition and was accepted to the finals.

He is the winner of Lillian Davis Beethoven piano competition and Sterndale Bennett Prize at the Academy as well as Intercollegiate Beethoven Piano Competition organised by Beethoven Piano Society of Europe.

In January 2017 Andrei became BBC Classical Introducing artist. As well as giving solo concerts he is also interested in chamber music playing with different chamber ensembles at the Royal Academy. In February 2017 Andrei was honoured to perform Brahms Piano Quintet with Maxim Vengerov in Duke’s Hall of RAM.

The Hattori Foundation was established as an Educational Trust by the Hattori Family and granted charity status in 1992.

The aim of the Foundation in the field of music is to encourage and assist exceptionally talented young instrumental soloists or chamber ensembles who are British Nationals or resident in the UK and whose talent and achievements give promise of an international career.
