Music: Evgeny Kissin
  • Music: Evgeny Kissin

    Event

    In a co-production of the Kennedy Center and Pro Musica Hebraica, Evgeny Kissin, a pianist of depth, lyricism, and power, presents an entirely unique and deeply personal program in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall: the music and poetry of East European Jewry. For the first time ever, Mr. Kissin brings together his two great passions, classical music and Jewish literature. His program features rare solo piano works by early twentieth-century Russian Jewish composers inspired by traditional Jewish music, including Alexander Veprik's Sonata No. 2, along with Ernest Bloch's magnificent 1935 Piano Sonata. In addition, he will recite personally selected Yiddish poetry of uncommon depth and beauty.

    This is Kissin at his most authentic and passionate. An event not to be missed.
