Evgeny Kissin by Sasha Gusov
Beethoven’s invention and virtuosity are showcased by Evgeny Kissin, “a deeply intuitive and sensitive musician” (The New York Times). The “Pathétique" is one of Beethoven’s most popular sonatas, a powerful emotional journey that looks ahead to the Romantics in its intensity. There’s also an emotional storm in the opening of “The Tempest” Sonata, while the “Waldstein” is boldly heroic. There’s heroism in the “Eroica Variations,” a dazzling set based on a theme that also appeared in a country dance, the ballet The Creatures of Prometheus, and eventually the “Eroica” Symphony.
