The "Siberian Bear" in a piano recital dedicated to Schumann and Rachmaninov, recorded at the 2012 Verbier Festival!

Denis Matsuev made his debut at the Verbier Festival in 2011 – and had been a privileged witness of his performances, which were physically impressive due to their degree of virtuosity, as well as the power and musical inspiration they displayed.

On the stage of the Salle des Combins in Verbier, Denis Matsuev astonished his audience with a programme dedicated to Schumann and Rachmaninov. Greatly acclaimed for his interpretations, Matsuev concluded this recital with an incredible series of encores by Rossini, Tchaikovsky, Duke Ellington or Shchedrin – the best opportunity for us to admire the beautiful and various shades Matsuev is capable of.
