We are delighted to announce that Robert Levin has been appointed as the Academy of Ancient Music’s inaugural Hogwood Fellow. His tenure of the new fellowship starts with immediate effect until the end of the 17/18 concert season.
The Fellowship is named after Christopher Hogwood, founder of the AAM, and Robert Levin’s long time collaborator and friend.
Throughout his career Robert Levin has maintained a close association with the AAM as a soloist, conductor, scholar and musicologist. Richard Egarr comments on his appointment as follows:
“I’m so pleased that Robert Levin will be our very first Hogwood Fellow. He is a most incredible mind, has an encyclopedic knowledge of Mozart and Bach, and total recall over information. But not only that, he has the ability to transform this information into extraordinary live performance.”
Robert Levin will next perform with the AAM at the Barbican Centre’s ‘Sound Unbound’ weekend in April 2017, more details of which can be found here.
