“Piano playing at its best . . . this performance alone would be enough to earn Pletnev a place among the very greatest pianists who have ever lived.” – BBC Music Magazine
The brilliant pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev, winner of the 1978 Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, is not only one of the best representatives of the Russian piano tradition, but is also a stunning and idiosyncratic interpreter of the standard repertoire. He is considered one of the greatest pianists of our time.
