Reviews

Kissin shot to fame in 1984 when, at the age of 12, he delivered a dazzling performance of Chopin's two piano concertos at the Moscow Conservatory. His musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretation, and his extraordinary virtuosity have placed him at the forefront of the world's new generation of young musicians. This production of works by Schubert, Brahms, Bach, Liszt and Gluck was recorded at the Bavaria Musikstudios in 1990.

So young yet such a master! Kissin's manner at the keyboard is mesmerising. Note his amazing attack at the start of the Brahms, for example. All the pieces show astonishing technical mastery, of course, but also great depth and range of emotion. Take the opening number of Liszt's arrangements of Schubert songs, Auf dem Wasser zu singen, full of passion and brio contrasted with the second number, Der Muller und der Bach, expressing a more yearning and pensive feeling. For me, though, the highlight was Wilhelm Kempff's arrangemnet of the Siciliana from a Bach flute sonata(BWV 1031). This piece has an overwhelming sublimity to it which the 19-year-old (!) Kissin brings out wonderfully. Buy! buy!

An extraordinary moment 20 April 2008
By S. Park - Published on Amazon.com

I first bought this performance by Kissin in laser disc format years ago and have been anxiously waiting for a DVD release because I don't use laser disc player anymore. Needless to say I am so pleased that I can watch and listen to this magical performance of some of the most beautiful tunes written for piano by 19 year old Kissin. Without exaggeration, this perferomance by Kissin is a truly special one.

The playing was so refrshingly innocent, tender, cristal clear, technically perfect, and always with beautiful singing lines. I believe no one else can play these repertoires better than Kissin at that age. The video was superb, perfectly catching Kissin's unique playing style and his youthful expression; and the audio recording was excellent. Anyone who loves piano music, or I would say music in general, should watch this DVD at least once. I myself have watched it numerous times so far.

Astonishing, rapturous playing 9 Oct. 2008
By R. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It is hard to find adequate words to express Mr. Kissin's performance on this DVD. Young as he is, the amount of drama, poetry, and emotion which pours out of him is absolutely amazing. I can only say that the Schubert/Liszt and the Brahms, especially, are marvelous. No matter what your level of skill, or familiarity with the music, you will treasure this DVD.

If you love classical piano music, this DVD should be in your collection. Evgeny Kissin as a very young man with amazing technical and emotional skills. Saying I love this performance doesn't begin to express how much I enjoyed this performance and will enjoy for many years to come.

I use this video for inspiration for my own practicing. Kissin has such a deep level of engagement in addition to his seemingly unstoppable technique.
