THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY PRESENTS GREAT PERFORMERS
Since his legendary 1984 debut with the Moscow Philharmonic at age 13, performing the Chopin concertos, Evgeny Kissin has established his reputation as one of the most remarkably gifted pianists of this generation. As part of the Great Performers Series, Kissin presents a recital program demonstrating his extraordinary athleticism and deep musical sensitivity: Schubert’s D major Sonata, a work requiring equal shares of power and nuance, prefaces the ravishingly virtuosic piano music of Alexander Scriabin.
Sonata in D major, D. 850
Selections from Twelve Études
Concert: Approx. 1h 30m, includes intermission.
