Robert Levin, renowned for reviving the lost Mozartean art of improvisation, directs the AAM from the keyboard. His Mozart and Beethoven performances have been hailed for their mastery of the classical musical language and free-flowing spontaneity. In addition to his performing activities, Levin is a noted musicologist, award-winning Mozart scholar and an expert music theorist.

His AAM programme showcases several of Mozart’s early keyboard works, written at a time when their composer was busily exploring the colourful sound-worlds of the organ and harpsichord.

“Levin lives Mozart throughout his entire body, and for every second of the score … he plays the music as if he’s writing it himself – for the first time.” The Times, 2011
