Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin may be only 40, but such has been his astonishing career that he is already considered a legendary interpreter of acclaimed skill and insight. A child prodigy, he first recorded aged 13, and in the three decades since has embraced the monuments of the pianist's repertoire, from the Chopin with which he first made his name, to the emotional depths of Schumann and the sheer virtuosity of Liszt. Intelligent, powerful, and able to tackle even the most formidable technical demands and find within them the score's soul, Kissin has become one of our age's most remarkable musicians.
