Piano Recital by Mikhail Pletnev Poster


Winner of the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1978 at the age of 21, the Russian pianist, conductor and composer Mikhail Pletnev has for long enjoyed a distinguished international career. He reached to top of the world as a genius pianist with deep intellect and perfect technique, and charmed the audience in the world with a talent like magic also as a conductor or a composer simultaneously. Therefore, his announcement of not to play the piano again after completed all the Beethoven piano concerti recordings in 2006 was a shock to the audience in the world.

Mikhail Pletnev returned to the stage as concert pianist with Kremerata Baltica in March 2013. His concerts elsewhere are highly praised by the public as "…unbelievable concert. Hard to believe that it is by a pianist who has been away from the stage more than six years!" Audience should not miss the chance of hearing him again, with the programme featuring works by Bach and Scriabin.


Bach: A selected piece from the English Suites
Schubert: Sonata No. 4 in A Minor, D537
Schubert: Sonata No. 13 in A, D664
Scriabin: 24 Préludes, Op. 11


Mikhail Pletnev
Mikhail Pletnev is a genius pianist enchants and amazes audiences around the globe. His musicianship encompasses a dazzling technical power and provocative emotional range, and a searching interpretation that fuses instinct with intellect. At the keyboard and podium alike, Pletnev is recognized as one of the finest artists of our time. Pletnev was Gold Medal and First Prize winner of the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition when he was only 21, a prize that earned him early recognition worldwide. An invitation to perform at the 1988 superpower summit in Washington led to a friendship with Mikhail Gorbachev and the historic opportunity to make music in artistic freedom.

As a solo pianist and recitalist, Pletnev appears regularly in the world's music capitals. His recordings and live performances have proved him to be an outstanding interpreter of an extensive repertoire. The London Telegraph remarked, "from Pletnev's fingers and brain come ideas that vitalise the music and make it teem with freshness and wit. He made the music positively leap for joy." The Times describes his playing as "born of a prodigious virtuosity of imagination outrageous in its beauty."
