To read

Evgeny Kissin celebrated his fiftieth birthday in the autumn, but he reached musical maturity and a unique level of performance many years ago, mastering technical difficulties like no other pianist to expose the drama and nobility of his programmes. For this recital, which mirrors the performance on 15 January with American mezzo Renée Fleming, he pursues his celebration of Rachmaninoff with two Preludes and one of the two sets of Etudes-Tableaux. The term Etude should be interpreted in the pianistic sense (many of the pieces require flawless technical ability) rather than in the pictorial sense which is of course indicated by Tableau.
