Stefan Litwin – Pianist, Composer

There are not many musicians who are able to combine the creativity and sensitivity of a real artist (composer/performer) with the philological rigor and interpretive skills of a major scholar in the humanities.
Stefan Litwin’s playing is utterly brilliant. He is both a genuine virtuoso and a poet at the piano with deep insights into the crucial relationship between emotion and structure, extreme subjectivity and extreme sense of order.

Litwin’s compositions – and especially those for piano – display an originality of thinking in music that is remarkable. A work like the piano piece »Lyon 1943 (Pièce de résistance)« is in its expressive intensity a disturbing monument, an example of a political instrumental music in the succession of Stefan Wolpe.
