    Winner of the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in 1978, Russian pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev is not only one of the finest representatives of the Russian school of piano, but also an outstanding performer of the standard repertoire on the international circuit. At his last recital here fifteen years ago in 2006, Renaud Machard wrote in Le Monde: “Mikhaïl Pletnev does as he pleases and nobody even dreams of criticising this. His world is shrouded in the bizarre, which is not actually an aesthetic or a system as it seems to be governed by the mood of the moment. Pletnev does the exact opposite of other performers, but never gives the impression of thinking that he is more important than the music he is playing.” He concludes: “That is why Mikhaïl Pletnev’s peers consider him to be the one of the greatest living pianists. This is why this cruel and beautiful recital is one of the strongest we have heard”. We are sure that the magic will operate once again this evening with this Brahms-Dvořák programme.
