Igor Levit makes SF recital debut / SFGATE

Bookmark and Share

The young Russian German piano virtuoso Igor Levit has garnered excited and well-deserved attention in recent months. He performed Bach's "Goldberg" Variations in an extravagantly sparse New York staging by performance artist Marina Abramovic, and released a phenomenal three-disc set pairing that work with variation sets by Beethoven and Frederic Rzewski. Now Levit brings his keyboard gifts to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music on Thursday, Feb. 11, in his first local recital - Sonatas by Beethoven and Prokofiev along with works by Bach and Schubert.
