Entrancing pianist Evgeny Kissin never ceases to amaze
audiences and critics alike with his “deep musical and poetic
sensibility and his astonishing variety of touch, from spiky to
silken” (Chicago Tribune). Here he performs one of Scriabin’s
most popular works, the Second Piano Sonata, which blends
impressionistic colors with sweeping Chopin-like Romanticism.

Saint-Saëns
Symphony No. 3 (Organ)
The restless wanderings in the first movement of Saint-Saëns’
Organ Symphony gradually yield to serene contemplation,
growing in majestic grandeur with powerful organ chords
and concluding in a series of brilliant fanfares. Charles
Dutoit, renowned for his refined sense of orchestral color,
also leads Dukas’ dreamlike and seductive La Péri and the
world premiere of Guillaume Connesson’s Pour sortir au jour,
performed by the CSO’s own Mathieu Dufour.
