About the Event

Paderewski Memorial Concert

Our spring season kicks off with one of the world’s freshest and most delightful new discoveries: 28-year-old pianist Igor Levit. Virtually unknown until 2014, he has experienced a truly meteoric rise over the last twelve months in the wake of a performance at New York City’s Park Avenue Armory that garnered rave reviews from both The New York Times and The New Yorker. His debut recording for Sony Classical boldly tackled the last three Beethoven sonatas in all their cryptic glory, a rare undertaking for anyone but a venerated old-timer. Alex Ross of The New Yorker said of the recordings, “I was transfixed. Here was playing of technical brilliance, tonal allure, intellectual drive, and an elusive quality that the Germans indicate with the word Innigkeit, or, inwardness.” It is an incredibly exciting time to have him on our stage; by next year he may very well be a household name.
