In a career spanning 31 years, Kissin has tempered the carefree attitude of youth and brought a depth of maturity to his playing. At the age of 40, he has reached a unique level of performance, with his peerless mastery of technical difficulties laying bare the drama, nobility and poetry of his programmes. He can execute any technical feat with unrivalled prowess, but is also able to channel emotion to give free rein to expression. The Romantic repertoire forms the cornerstone of this performer’s career. The programme for this new recital will be a fresh and glittering showcase for this talent.
