Evgeny Kissin plays Haydn, Beethoven, and Gluck Verbier Festival 2013


A star of the Russian piano world, Evgeny Kissin has been a regular guest of the Verbier Festival since its beginning in 1994.

Since his extraordinary debut as a child of twelve playing Chopin in Moscou with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dimitri Kitaenko, Evgeny Kissin has become one of the greatest pianists of his generation. Perfect virtuosity and lyric musicality combined with incredible charm have made the artist into a worldwide phenomenon, whose recitals fill concert halls the world over to bursting.

Haydn’s and Beethoven’s works for solo piano count among the first masterpieces written for the instrument. Following Haydn’s Piano Sonata No. 59 and Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 32 in C Minor, he ended the concert with Gluck’s sublime “Mélodie” from his opera Orphée et Eurydice.
