Igor Levit

March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


UCSB Arts & Lectures presents an evening performance by pianist Igor Levit in spectacular Hahn Hall, at the Music Academy of the West.  Levit has made his mark on the classical music world as “one of the most probing, intelligent and accomplished artists of the new generation” (The New York Times). He turned heads when he nearly swept the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition. With his rare technical sophistication and refinement of tone, he stands among today’s leading pianists. His Rzewski interpretation has been called “majestic” (San Francisco Chronicle), while he plays Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations “as nimble as a cat on a high-wire… one imagines Beethoven playing it like this – in his dreams anyway” (The Times, U.K.).
