Mahler Chamber Orchestra with Igor Levit

Art from skill

21 April 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

Since Igor Levit's studies, William Bolcom's compositions have been among his constant companions. And the American composer's first piano concerto in particular whetted the pianist's appetite for more. Without further ado, he contacted the 80-year-old composer, who is known not only for his "classical" compositions such as symphonies, oratorios and solo concertos, but also for his "revolutionisation of ragtime". The new Piano Concerto No. 2 resulting from this contact is described by William Bolcom himself as a "gentle piece for not gentle times". We and you can look forward with great anticipation to this work commissioned by the Heidelberger Frühling and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

Igor Stravinsky "Dumbarton Oaks" Concerto in E flat major for chamber orchestra
