Evgeny Kissin plays Chopin

Verbier Festival 2009

Evgeny Kissin plays Chopin Verbier Festival 2009


Experience Evgeny Kissin in performance: a virtuoso, musical genius, and specialist in Chopin’s music.

More than any other pianists on the contemporary classical music scene, Kissin has a special association with Chopin. Joined by the Verbier Festival Orchestra and its musical director Charles Dutoit, he performs the beloved French-Polish composer’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a jewel of the Romantic repertoire.

Kissin follows the concerto with a performance of selected Études for solo piano from the Chopin’s Op. 10 and Op. 25. Acclaimed for his musicality and rich color palette, the pianist delivers here a stunning performance that was met with 15 straight minutes of standing ovation.
