Igor Levit

Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the essential artists of his generation” (New York Times), Igor Levit is the 2018 Gilmore Artist and Royal Philharmonic Society’s “Instrumentalist of the Year” 2018. He is the Artistic Director of the Chamber Music Academy and of the Festival “Standpunkte” of the Heidelberg Spring Festival and has been appointed a professorship at his Alma Mater the University of Music, Drama and Media in Hanover in spring 2019.

In September 2019 Sony Classical released Igor Levit’s highly anticipated first recording of all Beethoven Sonatas. The season marks the start of three Beethoven sonata cycles at the Lucerne Festival, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Stockholm’s Konserthuset, the Salzburg Festival and the Wigmore Hall, London. In May 2020 Igor Levit will tour the United States with an all-Beethoven sonata program – with performances amongst others at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Princeton, Washington, San Francisco and Chicago.

In addition to Beethoven, Igor Levit also focuses on Ferrucio Busoni’s piano concerto Op.39, which he will perform together with the WDR Symphony Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the principal conductors of both orchestras, Cristian Măcelaru and Hannu Lintu respectively, and together with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and the London Philharmonic Orchestra – both conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano.
