About

Washington Performing Arts presents:
Igor Levit, piano


The brilliant pianist Igor Levit, the 2018 Gilmore Artist and Royal Philharmonic Society’s 2018 “Instrumentalist of the Year,” returns to Washington to commemorate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, following the release of a Sony boxed set of the composer’s complete sonatas, with three sonatas from the Beethoven’s youth and his majestic “Hammerklavier” Sonata, Op. 106. Levit’s inventive interpretations have garnered him a “Recording of the Year” from Gramophone and praise as “one that communicates a wealth of meaning without artifice…a truly gifted artist” (The Washington Post).

“It is not easy to achieve stardom as a concert pianist these days…. Mr. Levit has managed to break through, thanks to a combination of his playing and his daring.” – The New York Times
