PROGRAM
In accordance with his established custom, Mr. Levant dispenses with the usual printed program and announces his selections from the stage as the concert proceeds.
His programs generally contain works of Bach, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, deFalla, Shostakovich, and of course, George Gershwin--fre?quently including numbers which he has recorded.
Oscar Levant is one of the most colorful personalities in American music, and is a man of many careers--a brilliant concert pianist, unrivaled raconteur, composer, author, and motion picture, radio, and television performer. Mr. Levant was born in Pittsburgh and began his piano studies at an early age. At fifteen he went to New York to study with Stojowski, and later studied composition with Arnold Schoenberg. His virtuosity has earned him the distinction of appearing as soloist with most of the major orchestras in the country, including the Philadelphia, New York Philharmonic, NBC Symphony, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, San Francisco, Minne?apolis, and Los Angeles.
