CS Music Society: Sophia Lisovskaya and Sergey Levitin
Chipping Sodbury Town Hall
Chipping Sodbury Music Society presents: Sophia Lisovskaya, piano and Sergey Levitin, violin
Sophia Lisovskaya was born in Moscow into a family of professional musicians. Having shown early promise she gave her first public performance at the age of six in Moscow’s Museum of Fine Art, one of Sviatoslav Richter’s favourite venues, and has since continued to follow the grand tradition of the old Russian School with a lineage of professors leading directly back to the great figures of Neuhaus, Sofronitsky and Scriabin.
Born in Russia, Sergey Levitin studied in St.Petersburg and Vienna where his teachers were Aaron Knaifel, Mark Komissarov, Mikhail Gantwarg and Igor Ozim. In 1996 he was appointed Concert Master of the Mariinsky Theatre (Kirov) Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev. With that orchestra, Levitin toured worldwide and took part in many recording projects for Philips Classics and Decca including Shostakovich’s symphonies and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade.
