Igor Levit, piano
“Igor Levit goes where other pianists fear to tread... His range of color and dynamics, concentration and freedom, make compulsive listening.” The Observer (U.K.)
Pianist Igor Levit has made his mark on the classical music world as “one of the most probing, intelligent and accomplished artists of the new generation” (The New York Times). He turned heads when he nearly swept the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. With his rare technical sophistication and refinement of tone, he stands among today’s leading pianists. His Rzewski interpretation has been called “majestic” (San Francisco Chronicle), while he plays Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations “as nimble as a cat on a high-wire… one imagines Beethoven playing it like this – in his dreams anyway” (The Times, U.K.).
