Keyboard pioneer, scholar, exuberant showman: US musician Robert Levin is one of the world’s most respected authorities on early keyboard music, famed for his astonishing insights, and for the breathtaking freedom and spontaneity of his playing. He can allow you to hear well-loved music in an entirely new way, mixing dazzling erudition with brilliant virtuosity.
For his typically thought-provoking all-Mozart recital, Levin performs four iconic keyboard sonatas – the bravura B flat Sonata K333; the graceful E flat Sonata K282 and the lyrical C major Sonata K330. He intersperses these exquisite sonatas with lesser-known keyboard works by Mozart that act as bridges between them – even including a Mozart-style prelude improvised by himself.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Robert Levin are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
