CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Igor Levit, Piano

Igor Levit by Felix Broede / Sony Classics
Igor Levit’s last Carnegie Hall recital was called by The New Criterion critic “a peak pianistic experience of my concertgoing life. I left the hall feeling high.” Now it’s your turn. Cited by The New York Times for being “consistently game for unconventional approaches to the repertory,” he plays such rarities as Brahms’s left-hand arrangement of Bach’s Chaconne, a rarely heard set of Schumann variations, a monumental Liszt organ work arranged by Busoni, and more.
