Verbier Festival 2009
Don’t miss the legendary pianist Evgeny Kissin in a recital dedicated to the music of his compatriot Sergei Prokofiev at the 2009 Verbier Festival.
The concert’s highlight was without a doubt the extracts from the piano version of the music to Prokofiev’s ballet, Romeo and Juliet, including the dramatic “Montague and Capulets”. The concert continued with Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 8 and his Suggestion diabolique…
A genius by reputation, Evgeny Kissin belongs to the rare breed of musicians adored as much by the public as by their peers. This jewel of a recital shows the pianist at the 2009 Verbier Festival.
