Bookmark and Share

Each month, WCLV: Cleveland Program Director Bill O'Connell selects a series of special CDs to be featured on the air throughout the month. Igor Levit's Beethoven: The Late Piano Sonatas - Nos. 28-32 on Sony Classical features on Thu 4/3, Mon 4/14, Wed 4/23.

"All of the positive attention and high praise that 26-year-old pianist Igor Levit has garnered in Europe is thoroughly justified by his Sony Classical debut release encompassing Beethoven's last five sonatas. Levit's affinity for the composer's essentially linear style and intense expressivity borders on clairvoyance… This is Beethoven playing of the highest distinction, not to be missed." Jed Distler, ClassicsToday.com. Listen to Mr. Levit's conversation with WCLV's Angela Schmidt.
