MICHAEL LEWIN - Pianist

Michael Lewin is internationally applauded as one of America’s most abundantly gifted and charismatic concert pianists, performing to acclaim in over 30 countries with orchestras and in recital.

Recognized as a master interpreter of Liszt, Mr. Lewin has been celebrating that composer’s music around the world in 2011 to commemorate his 200th birthday. He has presented a variety of recital programs entitled “Liszt and his Circle” throughout the United States, the Netherlands, Canada, Colombia, Puerto Rico, and Italy, in addition to performances of Liszt’s Totentanz and 1st Piano Concerto. His past summer’s festival appearances included Holland’s “Peter the Great Festival”, Music Fest Perugia in Italy and the International Keyboard Institute and Festival in New York City. Upcoming early 2012 concerts include a recital at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the world premiere of the Kocsis Concerto for Piano and Chamber Orchestra, a Canadian recital tour and the Beethoven 3rd Piano Concerto in Illinois. He will also be making his second recording for Dorian Sono Luminus, “Ghosts & Goblins.”

Highlights of Mr. Lewin’s 2009-2010 season included his London recital debut at Wigmore Hall (in an all-Griffes gala program) followed by a recital at Oxford University. He toured China playing the Liszt Piano Concerto No.1 with the Beijing National Radio and Television Orchestra, and made his thirteenth appearance with the Boston Pops. Many of his recital programs featured music inspired by birds from his popular new recording “If I Were a Bird,” which received a Producer of the Year Grammy nomination. 2010 also saw a variety of all-Chopin programs in celebration of that composer’s 200th birthday.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
