Steven Isserlis & Robert Levin I

Foundations
Music
Next event:

​Double concert with an electric star duo. 

‘Dynamic, intimate’, ‘often electric’. ‘There’s a sense of two powerful minds intensely engaged in Beethoven’s dialogue. At best, it’s unbeatable.’

This is BBC Music Magazine’s review of the combination of cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Robert Levin. 

The Herald (Scotland) writes: ‘Levin is an astounding communicator. Sometimes he says a lot; sometimes very little. But what he does and says is gold dust.’ He has completed some of Mozart’s unfinished works, including his Requiem. 

Grammy-nominated Isserlis is internationally acclaimed as a soloist, chamber musician, educator and author. He has a broad repertoire and a characteristic playing style, and champions authentic performances of both older works and contemporary music. 

Isserlis and Levin give two concerts of different Beethoven programmes in the intimacy of Troldsalen, where audiences gain close contact with the artists and their music. Picture: Steven Isserlis (photo: Satoshi Aoyagi), Robert Levin (photo: Clive Barda)
