Piano magician returns to Belgium for one time recital

Solo recitals by Russian sound magician Mikhail Pletnev are rare. The last time Pletnev could be admired solo in the Benelux is over five years ago. Pletnev is regarded as one of the very greatest pianists from the Russian piano school and his idiosyncratic, but always fascinating interpretations are characterised by perfect sound control and a limitless palette of colours and a unique sense of timing.
