Robert Levin is honoured to have been awarded the Golden Mozart Medal which is the highest award of the International Mozarteum Foundation. The award is given to individuals and institutions in recognition of their significant contribution to understanding the life and works of W.A. Mozart and to the work of the Foundation.

Previous recipients of this award include Lilli Lehmann, Karl Böhm, the Vienna Philharmonic, Sir András Schiff, Alfred Brendel, Miloš Forman, Mitsuko Uchida, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra.

A distinguished pianist, teacher, composer and performer, Robert Levin is also a noted theorist, music scholar and member of the Academy for Mozart Research at the International Mozarteum Foundation, with whom he has been closely associated with for fifty years. His completions of Mozart fragments are published by Bärenreiter, Breitkopf & Härtel, Hänssler, and Peters and have been recorded and performed throughout the world. 

He is renowned for his restoration of the Classical period practice of improvised embellishments and cadenzas; his Mozart and Beethoven performances have been hailed for their active mastery of the Classical music language. His recording cycle of Mozart’s complete works for keyboard and orchestra initiated in 1993 with the Academy of Ancient Music and Christopher Hogwood saw its completion in 2022.
