Levit has been performing for the past five years, and is now part of the touring band The Gilels.
The band recently played a show in Montreal and is scheduled to play another one this summer.
“It was a great experience to work with Levit, to work on such a massive album, and also a really fun one, to be part of such a great band,” said guitarist Gilel Buniatishva.
“The album is just incredible.”
Levit will be the first Canadian pianist to headline a major American concert in about 15 years, following the release of his debut solo album, 2012’s The Sound Of Music.
The Gilders are currently touring Canada, and are scheduled to perform in Toronto in June.
The music industry is very aware of Levit’s popularity, and has been supportive of his career and his band.
“We’ve been so happy to be able to be a part of this,” Buniatushva said.
“I think it’s fantastic that there are still people out there that know what it’s like to play the piano, to write music, to play a lot of music.
We hope people will come see us and see the incredible thing we can do.”
