Ian Hobson (b1952)

Ian Hobson was born into a family of keen amateur musicians and began piano lessons at the age of five. At eleven he began studying the violin and at thirteen began taking organ lessons as well, something he found to be a ‘very useful discipline’ in learning the piano. At sixteen Hobson won a scholarship to Magdalene College, Cambridge where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in two years, a course normally taking three years. At the same time he studied piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Sidney Harrison, gaining his recital diploma at the age of seventeen. Hobson then went to study at Yale University with Ward Davenny and Claude Frank. Alongside his piano studies, Hobson took tuition in harpsichord and also concentrated on conducting, becoming a finalist in the Baltimore conducting competition. After completing Master’s and Doctoral programmes he accepted an Associate Professorship of piano at the University of Illinois, worked with Menahem Pressler, pianist of the Beaux Arts trio, and later became a full Professor at the University of Illinois. Further conducting experience was gained at Aspen, Tanglewood and Cleveland, being invited there by conductor Lorin Maazel. In 1984 Hobson formed his own orchestra, the Sinfonia da Camera.
