Igor Levit has recently given highly acclaimed debuts in major musical centres across Europe and is being hailed by international critics as one of the most outstanding pianists of our time.

Levit is a BBC Young Generation Artist and currently features in the 'ECHO Rising Star' program of the European Concert House Organization. Not just another young aspiring pianist releasing his debut album, he is an outstanding artist who meets the exceptionally high technical and interpretative demands of this extraordinary repertoire.

Despite his young age, Levitís interpretations display a rare depth and maturity, making for extremely well-balanced renderings on an artistic level of the great piano masters of our age.

The Russian-German pianist performs one of the largest chunks of piano repertoire Ė Beethoven's much-revered five late sonatas opp.101, 106 and 109Ė111. Here, Beethovenís late piano sonatas can be discovered in a most natural and tonally beautiful way. Written between 1816 and 1822 when the composer was completely deaf, Beethovenís last sonatas are highly subjective artistic and personal confessions. The sonatas constitute one of the cornerstones of Beethoven's mysterious late style, next to the last five quartets.
