PIANO RECITAL BY KIRILL GERSTEIN
THURSDAY 27 JUNE 2024
VICTORIA CONCERT HALL
“This is the kind of serious, intelligent and virtuosic music-making that keeps classical music alive.” (The Observer)
Fom Bach to Adès, pianist Kirill Gerstein’s playing is distinguished by a ferocious technique and discerning intelligence, matched with an energetic, imaginative musical presence that places him at the top of the international profession, with solo and concerto engagements taking him from Europe to the United States, East Asia and Australia.
Fall under his creative spell as he returns to Singapore to perform character pieces by Chopin, Liszt, Fauré and Poulenc, before taking us on a vivid Viennese adventure as captured in the music of Schumann and Johann Strauss Jr., the latter in a flamboyant arrangement by Godowsky full of glittering colour and bravura.
