Evgeny Kissin in recital

- 10 July 2021 - 21:30 /

Evgeny Kissin is without a doubt one of the greatest pianists of our time, and he will deliver an exceptional performance at the Jean-Deschamps Theatre for the audience of the Carcassonne Festival.

Born in 1971, Evgeny Kissin started to play and improvise on the old family piano at the tender age of two.  At the age of 6, he joined Moscow’s Gnessin school of music and studied under Anna Pavlovna Kantor, who remained his only teacher. This child prodigy made his début at the age of ten with Mozart’s piano Concerto K 466 and gave his first recital one year later...
Since then, he has appeared at major international venues (Carnegie Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein, London’s Barbican Centre, etc.). This exceptional soloist has performed alongside prestigious orchestras (Vienna, New York and Israel Philharmonic, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Paris Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra), under the baton of Claudio Abbado, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Christoph von Dohnanyi, James Levine, Lorin Maazel, Lawrence Foster, Riccardo Muti, Seiji Ozawa, Carlo Maria Giulini, Georg Solti, Sir Colin Davis, Emmanuel  Krivine, Mariss Jansons or Zubin Mehta...

Evgeny Kissin has received numerous awards throughout his career: Crystal Prize of Osaka, Shostakovich award, Triumph, Herbert von Karajan Prize, Edison Klassiek award, Diapason d’Or, Grand Prix de la Nouvelle Académie du Disque in France. In 2006 and 2010 he won a Grammy Award for best instrumentalist soloist and, in 2002, was named Echo Klassik soloist of the year. Evgeny Kissin is the youngest pianist to win Musical America’s instrumentalist of the year.

With its one hundred and twenty-five musicians, the Orchestre national du Capitole is currently one of the most brilliant French orchestras. The tremendous momentum generated since 2008 by its Musical director, Tugan Sokhiev, means that its reputation now extends well beyond national boundaries.
