Department of Music Presents Guest Artist Recital by Award-Winning Russian Pianist
The Department of Music at Ashland University presents award-winning Russian pianist Dmitri Levkovich on Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elizabeth Pastor Recital Hall in the Center for the Arts. This event is free and open to the public.
The program will include Bach’s “Prelude & Fugue in G# minor;” Beethoven’s “Sonata in D minor, Op. 31, No. 2” (also known as “Tempest”); and “Piano Sonata No. 1” by Carl Vine. Following intermission, Levkovich will perform Chopin’s romantic “Barcarolle, Op. 60 in F# major” and Schubert’s technically demanding “Wanderer Fantasy, Op. 15,” for solo piano.
Levkovich has been described as “…one of the truly elect, an artist with technique, a ravishing touch, sensitivity, perspective and intelligence. Seldom do these qualities come together so compellingly.”
A Ukrainian native and worldwide performer, Levkovich has been winning competitions all over the world, including a recent first place award in the 2009 José Iturbi International Piano Competition in Los Angeles and the Chopin Prize in the Cleveland International Piano Competition.
In addition to performances across the globe, including a 2006 performance at Carnegie Hall, Levkovich is a composer whose work has been performed by orchestras throughout Europe and the United States.
