Igor Levit: The Future Of Piano
Hailed as the future of piano, ivory-tickling prodigy Igor Levit is a performer of such vitality and innovation that many are naming him the pianist of the century. Critical acclaim aside, Levit is a mesmerising performer to watch, combining technical brilliance with an emotive yet intellectual tonal precision. The dazzling young performer will showcase his fleet fingerwork during Schumann's demanding Piano Concerto in A minor.
One of the German romantic composer's most popular works, the concerto brims with the harmonious relationship between joy and melody. The effervescent fantasia lies at a cross section between a symphony, concerto and sonata. Following this is Strauss' magnificent tone poem Aus Italien, a tender tribute to the spellbinding music, architecture, archeological ruins and food of Italy.
