The outstanding international pianist Igor Levit is appearing this weekend at the national convention of the Green Party in Leipzig.
He says: ‘Migration and integration are the most important issues for me, and I know what I’m talking about, because my parents came here with my sister and me, to rebuild their lives from scratch. Germany is my country, and that’s why I feel a fundamental obligation to open my mouth and take a stand.’
The Greens are selecting candidates for next year’s election.
Might Levit, 31, be one of them?
