Evgeny Kissin, whose effortless virtuosity and revelatory performances sell out concert halls around the world time and again, returns for an intimate recital. “Supple, elegant, unsentimental and suffused with poetry and nostalgia… Kissin’s mastery is so complete and his expression so natural in this music that he doesn’t seem to be interpreting at all” (Chicago Classical Review).

Stage seats are now on sale for this concert. Please call Patron Services at 312-294-3000 to order.

Evgeny Kissin will sign CDs in Buntrock Hall following the performance.
