‘Wherever Igor Levit plays, he spreads awestruck amazement.’ Thus the apt words of ‘Die Zeit’. In his graduate recital (for which he chose the ‘Diabelli Variations’!), this Russo-German pianist received the highest marks in the history of his institution. Born in 1987, he has given concerts all over the world since 2000. For his Beethovenfest recital he will devote himself to Johann Sebastian Bach and Ferruccio Busoni. Excerpts from ‘The musical offering’ and ‘The art of fugue’ will be flanked by two Busoni works that relate directly to Bach: a fantasy on the chorale prelude ‘Ach bleib bei uns, Herr Jesu Christ’ and the demanding ‘Fantasia contrappuntistica’, a tribute in 12 sections to Bach’s unfinished fugal compendium.
