Warner Classics have announced the signing of 17-year-old pianist Yoav Levanon to their label.
The Israeli-French pianist will include Liszt, Schumann, Chopin and Mendelssohn on his debut album with the label.
For his first CD with Warner Classics, Yoav Levanon has chosen a well thought-out program built around the donors who made it possible to build the famous monument to Beethoven in Bonn: Liszt, Schumann, Chopin and Mendelssohn wrote works whose proceeds would go towards financing this statue, inaugurated in 1845 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
Bertrand Castellani, Vice President of Warner Classics, comments, “We have been following this child prodigy for several years now, watching his artistic temperament develop, as the prodigy to becomes an artist… We are very happy to start a long-term collaboration with Yoav today, and wish to accompany him to the top.”
Levanon comments, “I am very excited to become part of the Warner Classics family. I feel very warm-welcomed by an exceptional team of professionals, that are open minded and care for me as an artist and as a person. It is a great honor to be accompanied by such a wonderful team and I look forward to a long term of an enjoyable and fruitful collaboration.”
