Igor Levit, Norbert Lammert and Wolfgang Herles in conversation
Kicking off a new series of talks: on the basis of Igor Levit’s recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations, the Russian pianist, together with music enthusiast Norbert Lammert and publicist Wolfgang Herles, will examine the gripping question of how much a musician’s own autobiography influences his interpretation. How much personal experience is in Igor Levit’s interpretation? How does the listener feel the interpreter’s biographical sensibility? What questions can a musical work pose to concertgoers? These are all aspects to be discussed on this evening.
