Igor Levit Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Tuesday October 18, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Igor Levit, Piano
SHOSTAKOVICH 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87
Pianist Igor Levit is an artist who dedicates himself completely to the task at hand, and in this highly anticipated return, he performs Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues in their entirety. With this collection of wonderfully diverse preludes and fugues, Shostakovich became one of numerous great composers to follow in the footsteps of J. S. Bach’s seminal The Well-Tempered Clavier, and “Levit’s performance reveals what wonderfully pianistic pieces they are, whether considered individually or as a magnificently arcing sequence” (The Guardian).
