Evgeny Kissin :

Beethoven


Legendary pianist Evgeny Kissin reunites with Deutsche Grammophon after 25 years

New album of Beethoven live recordings released on CD September 8

"Mr. Kissin's playing remains unbeatable" -  New York Times

"It has been clear for some time that Evgeny Kissin is a Beethoven player of rare pedigree and distinction, the finest Russian-born Beethovenian since Emil Gilels"  - Gramophone

Pianist Evgeny Kissin returns to the Yellow Label after twenty-five years with an exclusive contract and a new album of live Beethoven recordings. The album will be released on Deutsche Grammophon on August 4. The double-disc set, its program personally chosen by Kissin from recitals given over the past decade, includes Piano Sonatas No. 14 Op. 27 No. 2, "Moonlight", No. 23 Op. 57, "Appassionata", and No. 26 Op. 81a, "Les Adieux". It also comprises the evergreen 32 Variations in C minor WoO 80 and a profound exploration of the sublime two-movement Piano Sonata No. 32 Op. 111, the composer's final work in the genre.

The album, Kissin's first solo recital recording in more than a decade, represents a major addition to his Beethoven discography and an essential document of his artistic development. "These recordings were made in the moment of performance," observes the pianist. "Live recordings always surpass studio albums for me, because I feel more inspired when playing for an audience. It means a lot to me to be able to share the spirit of that live experience with others."

Kissin's discography already contains landmark recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, critically acclaimed collaborations with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan and Claudio Abbado among them. Kissin's autobiography Memoirs and Reflections due out this summer in the UK on London-based Orion Press, offers a moving account of the pianist's childhood in Russia, explores his close relationship with his parents and his teacher, Anna Pavlovna Kantor, and casts light on the inspirational world of the Russian-Jewish intelligentsia. It also encompasses Kissin's philosophical outlook and self-understanding, together with his penetrating observations on fellow musicians and creative artists.
