Washington DC Temple Visitors Center Piano Weekend

WASHINGTON, DC -- Max Levinson, 28 year old American pianist, will be the featured Guest Artist for the opening of the Piano Festival, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, at the Washington D.C. Temple Visitors' Center, 9900 Stoneybrook Drive, Kensington, Md. His program will include Schumann's "Symphonic Etudes, Op. 13," and Beethoven's "Variations on a Waltz" by Diabelli in C Major, Op. 120.

Mr. Levinson is the winner of the 1997 Guardian Dublin International Piano Competition, the first American to achieve this distinction. He then received critical acclaim for his two solo recordings and was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in March 1999. In 1997, he was named "Best Debut Artist" by the Boston Globe and was added to Steinway's distinguished roster of artists.

He is featured this season as a guest soloist with the San Francisco Symphony, the St. Louis Symphony, the Royal Dublin Philharmonic, the New World Symphony, the Detroit Symphony, and the Indianapolis Symphony. Also he will perform recitals in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Zurich and Hanover.

Among his many CDs are two critically acclaimed recordings of Brahms, Schumann, Bartok, Schoenberg and Leon Kircher. In recent seasons he has given debut recitals in London, Paris, Chicago, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The program is free and open to the public. For information, call the Visitors' Center at 301-587-0144
