Why See Evgeny Kissin?
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.
