Brief Bio

Canadian pianist Ian Hominick began studying piano in his native Nova Scotia, attending Mt. Allison University where he was a student of Jamie Syer and Patricia Elliot. Continuing his studies in the United States under the tutelage of internationally acclaimed pianists, Jerome Rose and Earl Wild, he earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Ohio State University in 1991 where he served as assistant to pianists, Earl Wild and Tchaikovsky Competition silver-medalist, André Laplante. An active soloist, accompanist, adjudicator and teacher, Mr. Hominick maintains a busy schedule of concerts and piano masterclasses across the United States and Canada including solo recitals in Chicago, Cincinnati, Ottawa, Montréal, Milwaukee, and New York City. Mr. Hominick has appeared as soloist on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, Chicago-Chautauqua Series, American Landmark Festivals, and has been a featured guest for Saskatchewan’s Rites of Spring Festival, the Hornby Festival Society in British Columbia and the American Liszt Society Festival.

He is also a frequent guest for Chicago’s WFMT Radio program “Live from Studio One.” Mr. Hominick’s premiere solo recording of the works of the legendary romantic pianist, Sigismund Thalberg, was released by Titanic Records in 1995 to glowing reviews from the critics and a nomination for “Best Classical Recording” in the East Coast Music Awards. His second CD featuring works by several rarely-heard classical and romantic composers will be released in 2008.
