Bruce Levingston is one of the leading figures on the contemporary music scene. Many of the country’s most important composers have written works for him and his Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center world premiere performances of their works have won notable critical acclaim. The New York Times calls him “[one] of “today’s most adventurous musicians” and describes his performances as “graceful,” “dreamy” and “hauntingly serene”; The New Yorker describes him as “a poetic pianist who has a gift for inventive—and glamorous—programming.” Following a recent performance in the historic Coolidge Auditorium at The Library of Congress, The Washington Post praised his “wonderfully even touch” and “transparency and timeless reverie, which Levingston projected beautifully.”
Mr. Levingston has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician in concerts and music festivals throughout the world and his performances have been broadcast internationally on radio and television. His CD Portraits received high critical praise. Classics Today lauded his “transcendent virtuosity and huge arsenal of tone color” while Germany’s Klassic Magazin noted his “warm playing, deep understanding and intimate, richly colored sound.”
Noted for his creative and thoughtful programming, Mr. Levingston has performed and collaborated with some of the most gifted artists of our time, including painter Chuck Close, actor Ethan Hawke, authors Michael Cunningham, Nick McDonell, and George Plimpton, composer/performers Lisa Bielawa and Philip Glass, violinist Colin Jacobsen and cellist Eric Jacobsen, and choreographers Jorma Elo and Peter Quanz.
Mr. Levingston began playing at age four and first studied with his mother. He later studied under Elizabeth Buday, Bela Borszomeni-Nagy, Morey Ritt, Anton Kuerti and Herbert Stessin. Long interested in human rights, Mr. Levingston gave performances to assist emerging “refusniks” from the Soviet Union, served as a U.S. delegate to the American Council on Germany in Berlin and Hamburg, and performed at the United Nations in honor of the people of Denmark for their heroism during World War II. He is founder and artistic director of Premiere Commission, Inc., a non- profit foundation that has commissioned and premiered over forty new works.
