Thursday

Messiaen Visions de lAmen
Shostakovich Symphony No 15 (arr Derevianki & Pekarsky)

Igor Levit piano
Markus Hinterhuser piano
Ning Feng violin
Julia Hagen cello
Klaus Reda percussion
Andreas Boettger percussion

Everything that Igor Levit plays is worth hearing, but this is something out of the ordinary: our Featured Artist performs a revelatory chamber version of Shostakovichs haunted final symphony.

Thats right the complete Fifteenth Symphony, in a pared-down transcription for piano trio plus percussion. Shostakovichs enigmatic final vision might seem like a curious pairing for Messiaens ecstatic vision of the infinite, but both works deal with transience and eternity viewed from very different but equally personal perspectives. Trust Igor Levit to bring them together: his peerless musicianship will do the rest.
