Evgeny Kissin

Piano recital, music from Chopin, Berg, Gershwin and Khrennikov

Description Program Artists

One of the world’s best pianists in a program that will have both connoisseurs and enthusiasts licking their fingers: this is what we have the privilege of presenting this evening. Evgeny Kissin will first be interpreting Chopin; aficionados have long since mentioned Kissin’s Chopin recordings in the same breath as those of Horowitz, Gilels, and Rubinstein. The Russian pianist will be treating us to a selection of true gems from the composer’s oeuvre – centering around the virtuoso First Scherzo and heroic Sixth Polonaise. Kissin will be dedicating the program’s second half to modern masters, building a bridge from Socialist realism to American jazz.
