One of music’s great polymaths, Robert Levin, joins us direct from Wigmore Hall with a specialist programme highlighting Mozart’s improvisatory Preludes, and alternating these with some of the greatest Sonatas.
He champions and composes contemporary music, but has also famously reconstructed Mozart choruses from sketches, including the Amen fugue in the Requiem. He has taught at The Curtis Institute, as the Piano Professor in Freiburg 1986-93, as Humanitas Visiting Professor in Cambridge 2012, and is currently Professor of Music Emeritus at Harvard.
Enjoy a special lunchtime concert, followed by a filmed masterclass with some of the Conservatoire’s finest young pianists, an event which promises to be of landmark significance.

The first UK music college to have an active research programme, established in 1993, we are now an internationally recognised centre for research into composition and performance with live electronics as well as producing world-leading musicological research.
