IGOR LEVIT, piano, January 11, 2018 7:30 pm
"He is set to be one of this century’s big names." — London Telegraph
"A major new pianist has arrived." — The New York Times
The accolades are piling up fast for this young Russian-born German pianist. He won Gramophone’s Recording of the Year 2016 award. After his sold-out Carnegie Hall debut in February 2017, The New York Times proclaimed him "one of the essential artists of his generation." Igor Levit is one of those forceful performers who makes an instant strong impression on audiences, with original, bracing takes on beloved repertoire. In a world full of impressive young pianists, find out why he is pulling away from the pack.
