Evgeny Kissin piano
Julian Rachlin violin
Mischa Maisky cello
From the radiant freshness of Schubert's Trio No.1 to the discreet, elegant sadness of Tchaikovsky's Trio as he mourned Rubinstein
Schubert Trio No. 1 op. 99 D. 898
Tchaïkovski Trio op. 50
For twenty years, Evgeny Kissin has been the unchallenged star of Russian piano playing. This child prodigy has now become a mature artist endowed with consummate skill. Respected by his peers and feted by audiences, this keyboard phenomenon is the soloist of choice for orchestras and fellow musicians in the chamber music community alike. This evening of trio playing offers him a break from the inevitable solitude of solo performances and is devoted to his repertoire of choice – Romantic and Russian music. He will be playing alongside Lithuanian Julian Rachlin, whose youthful looks belie a strong musical identity, and cellist Mischa Maisky – three generations of artists who speak the same musical language. Harmony and a close rapport are guaranteed.
