Igor Levit

Prelude lecture by Kristi Brown Montesano · 6:30 PM

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Described by The New York Times as one of the “most important artists of his generation,” Igor Levit places his art in the context of social events and understands it as inseparably linked to them. In 2020, Levit was named Musical America’s Recording Artist of the Year and nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the category “Best Classical Instrumental Solo.” This unique program riffs on the genre of musical preludes, including a jazz-influenced piece by Fred Hersch.
