Prof. Dr Robert Levin is a pianist, composer, music educator and musicologist who has a unique way of bringing together different approaches to music. He studied the piano and composition – with teachers including Stefan Wolpe and Nadia Boulanger – in New York, Paris and at Harvard University. The positions he has held include head of music theory at the Curtis Institute of Music and a professorship of piano at the State University of Music in Freiburg im Breisgau, after which he was appointed a professor at Harvard University. His professional activities have taken him all over the world – and not just in his capacity as a pianist. Various works left unfinished by W. A. Mozart and J. S. Bach have been performed in versions completed by Levin. His passion for historical context marks not only his pedagogical but is also documented by countless performances and recordings on period instruments of works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. At the same time, Levin is also a passionate advocate of new music and is the dedicatee of several works. He was a Hogwood Fellow at the Academy of Ancient Music, is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a recipient of the Bach Medal of the City of Leipzig. He was already a member of the jury of the Concours Géza Anda in 2018.
