A day with Mikhail Pletnev I: Brand-new moments at the Virtual Verbier Festival Virtual Verbier Festival 2020

About

Generously supported by Madame Aline Foriel-Destezet

The son of two musicians, Mikhail Pletnev excelled as a pianist from a very young age and won First Prize at the VI International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1978. His transcriptions of works by Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, and Shchedrin met with international acclaim and a 2003 Grammy Award for a Prokofiev duo with Verbier favorite Martha Argerich. In addition to his pianistic gifts, Pletnev is also a renowned conductor; he has excelled in both roles over the years at Verbier, collaborating with esteemed artists like Janine Jansen and Gábor Takács-Nagy. He is known as a pianist of extraordinary clarity and artistry, with a playing style “born of a prodigious virtuosity of imagination outrageous in its beauty” (The Times)—one which is always on full display at the Verbier Festival!
