The official music video of Igor Levit playing “Fugue No. 7 in A Major, Op 87”, from his upcoming album “On DSCH,” which will be released by Sony Classical on September 10.

“On DSCH” is a 3-album discographic tour de force by “one of the essential artists of our time” (The New York Times). That the self-styled “maximalist” enjoys pushing himself to his limits – intellectually and physically – is well known, but the present project – two key cycles of musical modernism – puts all others in the shade.
Completed in 1951, Dmitri Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues – a summary of all the major and minor tonalities – lasts some two and a half hours in total, while Ronald Stevenson’s Passacaglia on DSCH, which he completed in 1963, is an unbroken set of variations lasting nearly an hour and a half. The letters DSCH spell out Shostakovich’s musical monogram using their German note names: D–Es–C–H = D–E♭–C–B.
The album’s artwork is specially created by the internationally renowned artist and graphic designer Christoph Niemann, who regularly illustrates for “The New Yorker” and “The New York Times.”
Video director & producer: Boris Fromageot
