Winner of Gramophone's 2016 Recording of the Year Award, pianist Igor Levit has been hailed as an artist “built to last” (The Guardian) and "the best Russian pianist you haven't heard...yet" (Los Angeles Times).
The young Russian pianist was the youngest participant in the 2005 Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, and took home the Silver Prize, the Prize for Best Performer of Chamber Music, the Audience Favorite Prize and the Prize for Best Performer of Contemporary Music. His debut disc of the five last Beethoven Sonatas won the BBC Music Magazine Newcomer of the Year 2014 Award, the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artist Award 2014 and the ECHO Klassik 2014 for Solo Recording of the Year (19th Century Music/Piano). In October 2015, Sony Classical released Igor Levit’s third solo album for the label featuring Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and Rzewski’s The People United Will Never Be Defeated. The album was voted Gramophone’s Instrumental Award winner 2016.
