Camerata Musica: Igor Levit


Tuesday 25th February

7:30 pm

Camerata Musica is sorry to announce that Igor Levit’s fever, which earlier caused the postponement of his Cambridge concert planned for January, has unfortunately returned, and he has been instructed by his doctors that he should not travel or perform for the immediate future. As a result, he has had to cancel his recital planned for Cambridge this evening, and one planned for Frankfurt tomorrow. All Cambridge ticket-holders will be issued with a full refund by the ADC Box Office: no further action is required on their part.

Igor Levit has also sent the following personal message to all ticket-holders and Camerata Musica patrons:

Due to a sudden infection which has me bed-ridden with a high fever, my doctors have advised me not to fly to the UK to perform tonight‘s concert at Cambridge. I am devastated and more than disappointed having to cancel my recital today - after it had to already be postponed from earlier this month. I am grateful to Camerata Musica’s and their patrons’ understanding and support in this difficult situation and hope to be able to perform in Cambridge in the not too distant future - under luckier stars.

Igor Levit

Berlin, 25 February 2020

Camerata Musica greatly regrets this cancellation and the inconvenience it will cause. Patrons with any questions about the refunding of their tickets may contact the ADC Box Office: boxoffice@adctheatre.com


Celebrated for his rare technical sophistication, refinement of tone and innovative programmatic explorations, Igor Levit continues to make his mark on the classical music world as ‘one of the most probing, intelligent and accomplished artists of the new generation’ (The New York Times) and as a true artist ‘authentic in the most profound meaning of the word’ (The Sunday Times).

In this, his second visit to Camerata Musica, Levit performs an array of Romantic transcriptions of music: Brahms’ transcription of Bach’s Chaconne, Busoni’s transcription and fantastic reimagining of Bach’s music in Fantasia after J.S. Bach, Schumann’s ‘transcription’ of music he believed sung for him by ghosts in the Geistervariationen, Liszt’s transcription of Wagner’s Solemn March to the Holy Grail from Parsifal, and the monumental Busoni transcription of Liszt’s thunderous organ work, a Fantasia and Fugue on Meyerbeer’s chorale, ‘Ad nos, ad salutarem undam’.
