Igor Levit Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Thursday January 13, 2022, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$16 – $105
Igor Levit, Piano
Igor Levit is “like no other pianist” (The New Yorker). Called “one of the essential artists of his generation” (The New York Times), he performs with startling intensity, piercing intelligence, and fiery passion each time he is at the keyboard. His repertoire is endlessly eclectic, playing and recording music that spans J. S. Bach to Beethoven to Bill Evans. This program reflects the remarkable breadth of his art with Brahms chorales transcribed by Busoni, a new work by composer-pianist Fred Hersch, Liszt’s epic Sonata in B Minor, and an arrangement of Wagner’s Prelude to Tristan und Isolde.
