Charged with overseeing the pianists at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Grammy Award winner Michael Lewin is himself at the head of the class, having been specially chosen to be artistic director of Steinway’s 150th anniversary gala in 2003. With accolades also including the top prize of the Franz Liszt Competition, the pianist has also drawn comparisons to the namesake, with the Charleston Post and Courier observing that “Lewin plays the Mephisto Waltz as Liszt must have—explosively and with much color and expression. … He not only has extraordinary talent, but charm, poise, and wit.” Lewin will make his Ravinia debut with what the Washington Post has also called “a controlled, awesomely intense style,” capable of making Chopin “roar passionately yet precisely” and weaving Prokofiev into “a web of childhood dreams and nightmares.”
