Evgeny Kissin Essentials

Evgeny Kissin Essentials

It's clear that Evgeny Kissin is a Romantic at heart. Whether playing Chopin (Prelude No. 15 in D-Flat Major) or Liszt (“Ständchen”), the Russian-born pianist has a preternatural grasp of musical drama. A rising star in his mid-'80s childhood, Kissin would grow up to become a citizen of both the UK and Israel, and his sophisticated approach to music allows him to find the beauty in everything: His Schubert (Fantasy in C Major - “Wanderer”) is a powerhouse of authoritative runs and triumphant climaxes, while his Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 floats one moment and explodes with thunder the next.
