HarrisonParrott is delighted to announce the signing of 17-year-old Israeli pianist Yoav Levanon to its roster for general management, effective immediately.
Described by Diapason Magazine as “an authentic musician, who has everything to become one of the major pianists of this century”, Yoav Levanon has already performed on many of the world’s most prestigious stages such as Carnegie Hall, Fondation Louis Vuitton Paris, Auditorium Radio France and Charles Bronfman Auditorium, as well as at the Verbier Festival, Piano aux Jacobins Toulouse, Tsinandali Festival and Riga Jurmala Festival. Having made his orchestral debut at age 7, he now continues to collaborate with renowned orchestras such as Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and with artists such as Sergei Babayan, Daniel Oren, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Jonathan Nott and Vladimir Spivakov, among others.
In 2021 Yoav Levanon became an exclusive recording artist with Warner Classics, and his first recording for the label features a programme built around the donors who contributed to the building of the now-famous monument to Beethoven in Bonn: Liszt, Schumann, Chopin and Mendelssohn.
Prizewinner of numerous international competitions since the age of 5, he is currently a student of the ‘Piano Program for outstanding young pianists’ at the Jerusalem Music Center, directed by Murray Perahia, and is working under the guidance of Sir András Schiff in his artist performance studio at the Barenboim-Said Academy in Berlin
