Rzewski: Let the People United Never be Defeated

BBC New Generation Artist, the Russian-German pianist Igor Levit, plays Debussy's atmospheric 6 Épigraphes antiques and Brahms' Study no.5 in D minor for the left hand after Bach's Chaconne. He concludes his programme with Rzewski's exhilarating set of variations 'Let the People United Never be Defeated', based on a Chilean protest song and likened to a twentieth-century 'Diabelli' Variations.
