Winspear Opera House
December 10th 7:30 PM
Evgeny Kissin’s musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have earned him the veneration and admiration deserved only by one of the most gifted classical pianists of his generation and, arguably, generations past. He is in demand the world over, and has appeared with many of the world’s great conductors and all the great orchestras of the world.
In this unique evening intended to preserve the rich heritage of European Jewry — which The Washington Post called “breathtaking” — Kissin will perform works by seldom-heard Jewish composers (including Milner, Veprik & Krein) and recite selections of Yiddish poetry.
