Igor Levit piano

Brahms, Busoni, Schumann and Liszt


  • Igor Levit piano

Igor Levit’s recital combines mighty transcriptions by Brahms and Liszt with an entrancing mix of counterpoint and romantic melody. It culminates with the bell-like sounds of Wagner’s ‘Solemn March’ and Busoni’s spectacular piano arrangement of Liszt’s organ Fantasy and Fugue.
