Hot on the heels of his BBC Music Magazine award for Best Newcomer, pianist Igor Levit has been nominated for The Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award.  The nominations were announced live during BBC Radio 3 In Tune by presenter Sean Rafferty on 15th April, 2014.

The Royal Philharmonic Society [RPS] Music Awards, presented in association with BBC Radio 3, are the highest recognition for live classical music and musical excellence in the United Kingdom.
 
Awards in 13 categories are chosen by eminent independent juries from the music profession and are unique in the breadth of musical achievement they span – from performers, composers and inspirational arts organisations to learning, participation and engagement.  The list of winners since 1989 reads as a roll call of the finest living musicians. This year's awards are for achievement in the UK during 2013.  Winners will be announced at the RPS Music Awards ceremony on Tuesday May 13th with a special RPS Music Awards programme broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday May 18th at 10pm.
