Appearing for the first time at the Klaipėda Concert Hall, the piano duo of Agnė Radzevičiūtė (Lithuania / Canada) and Dmitri Levkovich (Ukraine / Canada) will treat the audience with an evening of virtuoso piano music. For their debut appearance the pianists handpicked a fine selection of Romantic works for solo piano and piano four hands.
Distinguished for “exquisite musical sensitivity and conviction,” pianist Agnė Radzevičiūtė has been lauded for her “sincere and meaningful” interpretations (7 meno dienos). Her performances in Vilnius and Paris have been featured live on Mezzo TV. Agnė Radzevičiūtė has won prizes in a dozen of international piano competitions, notably Prix de Piano at the Fontainebleau Festival in France. Her artistic distinctions also include the Queen Morta Prize awarded to gifted youth in Lithuania for their precocious achievements in the arts.
Ukrainian-born Canadian pianist and composer Dmitri Levkovich has performed at quite a few of the world’s major venues for classical music, including Frankfurt’s Alte Oper, Berlin Philharmonie, Beijing’s National Center for the Performing Arts, Berliner Philharmonie, Gulbenkian Foundation, Moscow Conservatory, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Warsaw Philharmonic, as well as Mariinsky Theater’s Concert Hall in St. Petersburg and Carnegie Hall in New York. His performances were praised for “artistic sophistication far above the ordinary” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) and “understanding of the music far beyond most young pianists” (American Record Guide), while his original compositions were commended for exhibiting “heartfelt melodies and big emotional surges (Philadelphia’s Broad Street Review).”
