Overview

One of the most celebrated recitalists of our time, Evgeny Kissin reaches across epochs, styles and borders in a program featuring works by Chopin that celebrate the composer’s Polish heritage. “It was with Chopin that Mr. Kissin shot to fame at age 12, and it’s still his calling card” (The New York Times). Works by Bach and Mozart unveil further layers to Kissin’s artistry.
