Composer and performer

Leon Gurvitch is a busy and active man with a tremendously wide-ranging sensitivity for music. He works as a composer, pianist and conductor, he loves Shostakovich and Stravinsky as much as Keith Jarrett and Astor Piazzolla, and he plays jazz, klezmer and art songs. All these sources of inspiration flow into his work, and he definitely belongs to a new generation of composers who also appear as performers.

This event replaces the cancelled concert from 24 January 2021. Tickets purchased for the postponed concert are valid for this event.

He was only 19 whe he founded his first ensemble in his home town of Minsk in Belarus. Not long after that, in 2001, he relocated to Hamburg. But from his new home base Gurvitch travelled regularly to the USA: most recently in 2017, when he gave a piano recital in New York's venerable Carnegie Hall. Leon Gurvitch went all in, playing Gershwin and his own works, and the concert in the sold-out concert hall was a huge success.

In the meantime, his catalogue features more than 400 compositions, and his music has been premiered in the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, in Carnegie Hall, in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, in Moscow's Tchaikovsky Conservatoire, in the Hamburg Laeiszhalle and in the Parisian Cité des Arts.
