About Evgeny Kissin
The Cleveland Orchestra writes: Evgeny Kissin’s musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have earned him veneration and admiration as one of the most gifted classical pianists of his generation. He is in demand the world over, and has appeared with many of the world’s great orchestras and conductors, including Claudio Abbado, Dimitri Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Christoph von Dohnányi, Carlo Maria Giulini, Lorin Maazel, Ricardo Muti, and Seiji Ozawa.
Kissin’s most recent release is an album featuring Beethoven Sonatas on the Deutsche Grammophon label. Awards for his recordings have included the Edison Klassiek (The Netherlands) and the Diapason d’Or and the Grand Prix of La Nouvelle Academie du Disque (France). His recording of works by Scriabin, Medtner and Stravinsky (RCA Red Seal) won him a Grammy Award® in 2006 for Best Instrumental Soloist. His most recent Grammy for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (with orchestra) was awarded in 2010 for his recording of Prokofiev’s Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 3 with the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy (EMI Classics).
Mr. Kissin’s extraordinary talent inspired Christopher Nupen’s documentary film, Evgeny Kissin: The Gift of Music, which was released in 2000 on video and DVD by RCA Red Seal. For more information visit imgartists.com/roster/evgeny-kissin/.
