Denis Matsuev piano
This ebullient Russian pianist is back with a programme to match his grand style: incantations, drama and thunderclaps!
Denis Matuev - DR
Beethoven Sonata No. 17 op. 31 No. 2 « The Tempest »
Sonata No. 31 op. 110
Schumann Scenes from Childhood op. 15
Tchaïkovski Meditation op. 72 No. 5
Prokofiev Sonata No. 7 op. 83
A recital by the Russian piano titan with outstanding technical prowess is not to be missed and Prokofiev’s Seventh Sonata should be a firework display. However, this worthy heir to Emil Gilels is also a poet at the classical keyboard. He performs Schumann’s Scenes from Childhood – Schumann inspired the slow movement of Prokofiev’s Seventh Sonata – and for the first time in Paris he takes us into the heart of Beethoven at his purest and most intimate with The Tempest and Opus 110.
