Latest interview from Igor Levit regarding his twitter recitals and the impact on his life:

And he played tonight a HausKonzert, not a resumption of his nightly recitals but just because he felt led to.
The Chorale Preludes for Organ as transcribed by Busoni. Esoteric pieces (the most well known being "Sleepers Awake", "Nun Komm der Heiden Heiland" and"Ich ruf'zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ", in intensely moving renditions). No. 4 , Rejoice, beloved Christians" is taken at breakneck speeds, faster even than Murray Perahia!
These chorales are life affirming, mournful at times, then ecstatic, reverential.
Good to hear Igor play again, if only intermittently.
