Biography
Igor Levit

Born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1987, Igor Levit moved to Germany with his family at age eight. He completed his piano studies at Hannover Academy of Music, Theatre, and Media in 2009 with the highest academic and performance scores in the history of the institute. In 2018 he was named the Gilmore Artist and Royal Philharmonic Society’s Instrumentalist of the Year. He was appointed a professorship at his alma mater in the spring of 2019.

In September 2019 Sony Classical released Mr. Levit’s first recording of the complete Beethoven sonatas. This season marks the start of three Beethoven sonata cycles at the Lucerne Festival, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, and Stockholm’s Konserthuset. At the end of the season he tours the United States with an all-Beethoven sonata program with stops at Carnegie Hall and in Princeton, Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Mr. Levit is the Barbican Centre’s 2019–20 featured artist; his residency comprises a solo recital and two duo recitals with pianists Markus Becker and Markus Hinterhäuser. Orchestral engagements include a European tour with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra conducted by Manfred Honeck, and returns to The Cleveland and Leipzig Gewandhaus, and London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Highlights of past seasons include debuts with the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, as well as international tours with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic.

In Berlin, where he makes his home, Igor Levit plays a Steinway D Grand Piano kindly given to him by the Trustees of Independent Opera at Sadler’s Wells.
