Bruce Levingston is one of the country’s most acclaimed concert pianists. Many of the world’s most important composers have written music for him and he performs regularly at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and other international venues around the globe. The New York Times named his most recent album, Heavy Sleep, one of the Best Classical Recordings of the Year calling it “a solo recital that shimmers with Mr. Levingston’s mastery of color and nuance.” The New Yorker calls him “a force for new music” and the American Record Guide writes, “Levingston is a pianist’s pianist” and praised his “stunning and highly illuminating performances.” Mr. Levingston is also author of the best-selling biography, Bright Fields: The Mastery of Marie Hull, published last year in celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the famed Mississippi painter’s birth. Mr. Levingston was born in the Mississippi Delta and divides his time between homes in New York City and Oxford, Mississippi where he serves as the Chancellor’s Honors College Artist in Residence at the University of Mississippi.
