Notes of a Critic at Large
F. Cord Volkmer
It could almost be said that the piano recital series at the Levitas Center in Southampton, known as “The Rising Stars,” is misnamed. It seems to me that many, if not most, of the performers in this series have already risen and begun to take their places in the musical firmament. This is certainly true of Igor Lovchinsky, who performed on December 8.
Mr. Lovchinsky is the recipient of the first place prizes in two piano competitions, the Eastman International Piano Competition and the Kozciusko Foundation Chopin Piano Competition. His work has won the praise of the great Earl Wild, who upon hearing him invited him to record on Wild’s own label, Ivory Classics. This debut CD was designated as one of the top five recordings of 2008 by Time Out International.
“The Rising Stars” series is the brainchild of Liliane Questel, a classical pianist and music presenter who is on the board of the Southampton Cultural Center.
