Evgeny Kissin, piano

Worldwide acclaim for the compelling and virtuosic talents of pianist Evgeny Kissin has grown unabated from his days as a child prodigy to the present. He is a regular guest soloist and recitalist in major concert halls all across the globe. "All the hallmarks of his genius--and one does not use the word lightly--were on display: the rich, sonorous tone, the dazzling fingerwork and, above all, the inspired fantasy." (The Times, London)

Performance Timing:  Approximately 2-1/4 hours, including one 18-minute intermission.
