Kirill Gerstein by Marco Borggreve
Fiery Hungarian folk music, brilliant flights of fancy, and pianism on the grand scale is showcased by Kirill Gerstein, praised for his “blazing technique, [and] wonderful command of color and nuance” (The Wall Street Journal). Hear how Liszt and Brahms fashioned traditional Hungarian music into virtuoso showpieces, Bartók and Kurtág explored new worlds of pianistic color, and more. For sheer excitement, there’s also Schubert’s “Wanderer Fantasy,” an energetic tour-de-force that soars with symphonic power.
