I don’t just want to be the man striking the keys.”

About the Event

At a time when very few artists take a clear political stand, piano legend Igor Levit speaks out on social and political issues often – on his social media channels, as a frequent guest on prominent European talk shows, playing at the national convention in Germany, performing at demonstrations on behalf of social inclusion, protesting climate change at his concerts, dedicating his albums to social causes, playing living room concerts on Twitter, and more. His commitment to using his platform and artistry for the betterment of the world has earned him the International Beethoven Prize for Human Rights, Statue B of the International Auschwitz Committee, and Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. This has also come at a cost — Levit has played under police protection after receiving antisemitic death threats. This artist is the epitome of a musician-activist, and this event will be a fascinating way to get to know him as an individual in a conversation permeated by live performance, moderated by award-winning international correspondent for National Public Radio, Deborah Amos.

DON’T MISS IT: Igor Levit will also perform a solo recital in a Special Event on Wednesday, October 30, 2024 at 7:30PM. We highly recommend attending both events for the most comprehensive encounter with this extraordinary artist.
