About

Igor Levitís new double album Fantasia features a wide range of works spanning a period of almost two centuries from 1720 to 1910 and showcases key compositions by Franz Liszt, Ferruccio Busoni, Johann Sebastian Bach and Alban Berg.

The starting point of the four paradigmatic works featured on the double album is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Levit has chosen Bachís exceptional Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue in D minor and combined it with Lisztís B minor Sonata, a highly charged piece that at the time of its composition looked far ahead into the future (which Levit is currently performing to great acclaim all over the world), together with Busoniís Fantasia contrappuntistica, in which Busoni perpetuated the Bach tradition, and Alban Bergís only Piano Sonata.

These four major works are complemented by four shorter pieces including Alexander Silotiís arrangement of the famous Air from Bachís Third Orchestral Suite, Lisztís transcription of Schubertís song Der Doppelgšnger, Busoniís Nuit de NoŽl and an early Piano Piece in B minor by Alban Berg.
