Pianist Robert Levin, a passionate advocate of new music and a noted theorist and Mozart scholar, has been heard throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, and Asia, in recital, as a soloist, and in chamber concerts. In early May, he and cellist Steven Isserlis collaborated on series of events at the 92nd Street Y in New York. After a lecture-recital preview on Wednesday evening, Mr. Isserlis and Professor Levin performed all of Beethoven's works for cello and piano on Thursday and Saturday evenings.
"These players, pushing each other to the limit, achieved a gripping excitement seldom heard in these works from the combination of cello and modern piano." James R. Oestreich, The New York Times
