Of Note for Thr., July 21, 2016: Pianist Igor Levit Performs Rzewski

“He is the future!” says The Los Angeles Times of German-Russian pianist Igor Levit.

His newest release is a powerhouse of an album featuring Beethoven, Bach, and Rzewski. Rzewski’s piece, “The People United Will Never Be Defeated!” was penned as a tribute to the Chilean people struggling against an oppressive government. Hear this stunning piece performed by Levit from 8 to 10 p.m. on KUAF. You can also listen to it in its entirety on demand until July 27.
