Ira Levin – Concerts in Brazil

PRESS

Auf dem Programm: seine Orchestration von Ferruccio Busonis Fantasia contrappuntistica, gefolgt von Mozarts Klavierkonzert Es-Dur KV 449 mit Levin selbst als Solisten und Robert Schumanns Vierter Symphonie. Um es vorwegzunehmen: Es ist ziemlich unglaublich, welche Qualität Levin mit dem Orchester bei einem so anspruchsvollen Programm erreichen konnte.
