Overwhelms with Bach, Chopin & Shostakovich

He is coming to Flagey Brussels for one concert on 17 June 2025. 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 highlight of the highlights. What architectural clarity and flawless pianistic precision! What incredible emotional intensity, musical depth and spiritual veracity resounded in every note he played.”
