Evgeny Kissin, piano
Presented by the Vancouver Recital Society
Evgeny Kissin’s genius was discovered in his first solo debut in Moscow at the age of 12. He made his European debut at 16, and his explosive American debut at Carnegie Hall just 10 days before his 19th birthday. Now, at the age of 45, he is still in constant demand, selling out major concert halls around the world. His musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have earned him the kind of veneration and admiration reserved for only the most gifted classical pianists.
Evgeny appeared on this series in 1996, and again in 1999. The VRS is thrilled to present him on one of his very rare visits to the west coast.
