Overwhelms with Bach, Chopin & Shostakovich

Russian star pianist Evgeny Kissin played to a sold-out audience at Amare in June 2023 and made the hearts of all piano lovers beat faster.

On 21 June 2025, he will return to the Netherlands for one more concert, exclusively at Amare The Hague. A concert that no piano fanatic should miss!

“Evgeny Kissin soloing at a lonely height,” Wenneke Savenije headlined a few years ago. She very aptly described the experience of attending a Kissin recital: “The unique intensity with which the former prodigy Evgeny Kissin managed to elicit magisterial sounds from the grand piano at the final concert was literally unheard of and, as far as I am concerned, the High Point of highlights. What architectural clarity and flawless pianistic precision! What incredible emotional intensity, musical depth and spiritual veracity resounded in every note he played.”
