Toccata and Fugue in D minor
Adagio in B minor
Andante spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante
After the classicism of Mozart and Beethoven, the baroque of Bach, Evgeny Kissin will lead us into the romantic style of Chopin, where his poetry reigns supreme.
In a 30-year career, Kissin has subdued the recklessness of the young years to give his playing the depth of maturity. He has now reached a unique level of interpretation, mastering the technical difficulties as no one else to expose the drama, the nobility and the poetry of his performances. Capable of all prowess, he also knows how to handle emotion to give full range to his expression. He is one of those performers whose romantic repertoire is the keystone of their career. A beautiful musical relationship unites the virtuoso and the Parisian audience, that continues to blossom from season to season. A regular guest of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, where he performs each year with great success, the “sacred monster of the piano” is back in 2022 for a new recital. The programme of this concert, which conjures up the Romanticism of Chopin, the Baroque of Bach and the Classicism of Mozart and Beethoven, should be a new and brilliant demonstration of his talent.
