Currently Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Timothy Ehlen has performed extensively in the United States and Europe as a soloist and chamber player. After his Lincoln Center debut in Alice Tully Hall in 1988, sponsored by the World Piano Competition, The New York Times raved that his “playing was filled with elegant personality… recalled bygone artists like Robert Casadesus and, especially Walter Gieseking in their mastery of both 18th century and impressionist music…immaculate technique.” New York Concert Review hailed Timothy Ehlen’s 1997 recital in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, presented on the ProPiano Recital Series, as “…an absolutely remarkable tour-de-force.” Recitals in France, Germany, and Korea have elicited a similarly enthusiastic response: “Sensitive and tender creativity [in Ravel]” [Fürther Nachrichten] and “behind the fire hid a heartfelt emotion, held together by tender affection [in Beethoven]” [L’Alsace].

In addition to numerous solo, concerto and chamber performances at the Krannert Center in Champaign, recent recitals include Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall on the ProPiano Recital Series, Cleveland Orchestra Schubert Bi-Centennial Series in Cleveland and many others.
