Why See Evgeny Kissin?

ClassicalConcerts

The prodigious classical pianist returns

Evgeny Kissin will perform at Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall, and Roy Thomson Hall. The Russian-British-Israeli classical pianist first found fame as a child prodigy and went on to have a far-reaching career performing his best-known interpretations of Romantic Era works, particularly those of Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Liszt. Showcasing artistry of the highest calibre and a powerful key-touch, the Grammy award-winning virtuoso has worked with almost all of the world's leading orchestras.

Kissin now returns and marries the beloved Rachmaninoff with Beethoven's massive Hammerklavier Sonata. A challenge of body and mind for some, but not for the outstanding Evgeny Kissin.

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
