Piano Recital by Evgeny Kissin Poster

祈辛钢琴演奏会-喝采系列

Much acclaimed for the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity, Evgeny Kissin has been in demand the world over. He is one of the leading musicians of our time. Kissin came to international attention in 1984 when, at the age of 12, he performed Chopin's Piano Concertos 1 and 2 with the Moscow State Philharmonic. Many awards and tributes from around the world have been showered upon him.

Kissin has made a number of critically acclaimed recordings and, for his work, has been granted a number of awards. The acclaimed piano virtuoso returns, Kissin performes Schubert's Sonata No. 17 in D and Scriabin's Sonata No. 2 in G-sharp Minor and Douze Études. Kissin has been loved by the Hong Kong audience and tickets of his recitals were always sold out quickly. His forthcoming return to the territory is eagerly anticipated.

Evgeny Kissin
Evgeny Kissin's musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have earned him the veneration and admiration deserved only by one of the most gifted classical pianists of his generation and, arguably, generations past. He has been in demand the world over, and has appeared with many of the world's great conductors, including Abbado, Ashkenazy, Barenboim, Dohnányi, Giulini, Levine, Maazel, Muti and Ozawa, as well as all the great orchestras of the world.

Kissin was born in Moscow in October 1971 and began to play by ear and improvise on the piano at the age of two. At six years old, he entered a special school for gifted children, the Moscow Gnessin School of Music, where he was a student of Anna Pavlovna Kantor, who has been his only teacher. At the age of ten, he made his concerto debut playing Mozart's Piano Concerto K. 466 and gave his first solo recital in Moscow one year later. He came to international attention in March 1984 when, at the age of 12, he performed Chopin's Piano Concertos 1 and 2 in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Moscow State Philharmonic under Dmitri Kitaenko. This concert was recorded live by Melodia, and a two-LP album was released the following year. Given the astounding success of this recording, Melodia proceeded to release five more LPs of live performances in Moscow over the following two years.

Kissin's first appearances outside Russia were in 1985 in Eastern Europe; his first tour of Japan in 1986; and in December 1988 he performed with Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic in a New Year's concert broadcast internationally. In 1990 Kissin made his first appearance at the BBC Promenade Concerts in London and, in the same year, made his North American debut, performing both Chopin piano concertos with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Zubin Mehta. The following week he opened Carnegie Hall's Centennial season with a spectacular debut recital, recorded live by BMG Classics.
