World premiere in Turku
A very special world premiere will take place in Turku — Ira Levin’s new orchestral version of Max Reger’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Joh. Seb. Bach op. 81. Conductor and pianist Ira Levin, who is cultivating a close relationship with Max Reger institute since 2005 and orchestrated many of Reger’s pieces, dedicated the manuscript to Susanne Popp and gave it to her as a present in January 2016.
