  • Igor Levit piano

Himself an exceptional pianist, the highly original and politically committed British composer Ronald Stevenson died in 2015 at the age of 87. Written between 1960 and 1963 and characteristically ambitious, his vast Passacaglia, based on Shostakovich’s musicalisation of his name in the form DSCH, is perhaps the largest single span of piano music ever composed.
