One of the world’s greatest living pianists, Evgeny Kissin, returns to Toronto this spring, three years after his critically acclaimed, sold-out performance at Roy Thomson Hall in 2015.

For this performance, Kissin brings an exciting programme which includes Beethoven’s Sonata No. 29, Op. 106 “Hammerklavier,” considered one of the composer’s greatest and most challenging pieces, as well as a selection of 12 preludes by Rachmaninoff, including the famous Prelude in C-sharp minor.

On August 25, Kissin is set to release his first solo recital recording in more than a decade (via Deutsche Grammophon). The recording documents “Kissin’s evolving relationship with Beethoven in a series of personally curated live recordings” (Gramophone). From child prodigy to living legend, Kissin has received numerous awards and accolades, having contributed significantly to the library of masterpieces recorded by the world’s greatest performers.
