 Update me on new releases by Kissin

Evgeny Kissin (b1971)

A prodigiously talented child who began to play the piano at the age of two, Kissin entered the Gnessin Institute at six where he studied with Anna Pavlovna Kantor. He made his orchestral debut at the age of ten, giving his recital debut the following year. It was in 1984, at the age of thirteen, that Kissin performed both of Chopin’s piano concertos with the Moscow Philharmonic. This concert was recorded and issued on LP in the West, resulting in worldwide interest in the young Russian. He first appeared outside the USSR in 1985, playing in Budapest and East Berlin, and two years later made his West European debut at the Berlin Festival. The following year he toured Europe with the Moscow Virtuosi and Vladimir Spivakov and played at the London Proms. At fifteen, Kissin made his debut in Japan and performed with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Herbert von Karajan when he was seventeen. At nineteen he gave his American debut in Carnegie Hall playing both of Chopin’s piano concertos with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and Zubin Metha and a week later gave his recital debut in the same hall. In 1997 Kissin was the first pianist to give a solo recital at the Proms, a concert at which he gave seven encores. He has worked with all the major orchestras and conductors including Claudio Abbado, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Carlo Maria Giulini and Daniel Barenboim.
