Young Indian pianist and composer Ishaan Leonard Rao is an emerging talent in the world of music. The 18-year-old Ishaan was recently chosen as a Sony Music Group Global Scholar, the only Indian recipient to be chosen from over 70 countries. The son of renowned musicians Pandit Shubhendra Rao and Dutch cellist Saskia Rao-de Haas, Ishaan was the youngest Indian musician to be awarded an ARSM performance diploma at the age of 12. Since a very early age, Ishaan has performed with his parents as the Rao Trio, interpreting music from different cultures and exploring the unifying links between them, and this cross-cultural exposure forms the basis of his solo piano programme.
