Pianist Beth Levin’s playing style can only be described as one of complete and selfless immersion into music, aided by an impeccable technique and an understanding that can be traced back to her unique artistic lineage. Levin, a former child prodigy who made her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 12, was subsequently taught and guided by legendary pianists such as Rudolph Serkin, Leonard Shure, Dorothy Taubman and Paul Badura-Skoda (who praised her as a pianist of rare qualities and the highest professional caliber). It is this lineage that allows Levin to connect the golden age of the great Romantic interpreters to the modern musical landscape and lends itself to her astonishing interpretive ease with all music, whether written one hundred years ago or one hundred days ago.
As a concerto soloist, Beth has appeared with The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Boston Pops Orchestra, the Boston Civic Symphony, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, and numerous other symphony orchestras throughout the Americas, working with noted conductors such as Arthur Fiedler, Tonu Kalam, Milton Katims, Joseph Silverstein and Benjamin Zander.
