Music: New York pianist Jonathan Levin performs at Lairmont Manor

New York pianist Jonathan Levin takes classical music off the top shelf and honors its origins as music of the church for the people in a concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, at Lairmont Manor, 405 Fieldston Road.

Levin’s program presents a variety of works that either came directly out of the church tradition, were inspired by religious subjects, or are based on melodies or hymns that would be used in the liturgy, and includes a wide range of expression from Bach’s immortal “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” to selections from Olivier Messiaen’s difficult “Vingt Regards sur l’Enphant Jesus.”

Tickets are $15 general, $12 seniors and students, $5 for people 18 and younger. Details: jonathanlevinpianist.com, 360-647-1444.
