Igor Levit's performance of Frederick Rzewski's seminal - and virtuosic - solo piano work at the Wigmore Hall was reviewed by The Guardian: "Rzewski puts everything from the baroque to Stockhausen and beyond into the stylistic blender, throwing in references to a couple more revolutionary anthems (the Italian Bandiera Rossa and Eisler’s Solidaritätslied) along the way, to create a work that demands transcendental Lisztian bravura. Levit took it all on with astonishing aplomb and sometimes scarcely believable accuracy."
