Considered one of the greatest pianists playing today, Evgeny Kissin has built a rare reputation, consolidated not just by his supreme technical ability but also by his great performative intensity and extremely refined musical sensibility. As if his art were a mere extension of his body, he told The New York Times that “playing music is the way I express myself best”. Rapidly imposing himself on the international circuit, at 19 he was excitedly welcomed at the Berlin Philharmomic and New York Philharmonic. Now, at 50, maturity has refined his well-known virtues without them losing any of their glow.
