Winner of Gramophone’s “Recording of the Year 2016” award and most recently named the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, a $300,000 international piano prize conferred every four years, Igor Levit has now progressed from rising star to “one of the essential artists of his generation” (The New York Times). Born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1987, Levit moved with his family to Germany at the age of eight where he currently resides. As the youngest participant in the 2005 Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, Igor Levit won the Silver Prize, as well as the Prize for Best Performer of Chamber Music, the Audience Favorite Prize, and the Prize for Best Performer of Contemporary Music. After making his U.S. debut in 2015 and his International Artist Series debut in 2016, the Schubert Club enthusiastically welcomes this phenomenal young artist back, this time to the larger Ordway Music Theater, for a predominantly Germanic recital program featuring the music of Bach, Busoni, Schumann, Wagner and Liszt.
