Evgeny Kissin was born in Moscow in October 1971 and began to play by ear and improvise on the piano at the age of two. At six years old, he entered a special school for gifted children, the Moscow Gnessin School of Music, where he was a student of Anna Pavlovna Kantor, who has remained his only teacher. At the age of ten, he made his concerto debut playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto K. 466 ... Read more in Amazon's Evgeny Kissin Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Good content, but not a new release 30 Oct 2013
By M. Yung
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This particular release coincided with the Liszt year in 2011. This is not an actual new recording, but a collection of previously released recordings from the 80s onwards. If this was made clear on Amazon it would have been better.

I would have liked to hear him play other Liszt pieces in his repertoire but not in this collection or previously recorded, such as La Campanella.

The master at work - but not at work, but at pleasure. To himself and us.
What else can one say about one genius playing the works of another?

5.0 out of 5 stars Kissin plays Liszt in grand style 10 Oct 2011
By P. Adrian - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Today, Evgeny Kissin is 40. I listen to his recent release - a twofer comprising a collection of some of his most remarkable Liszt accounts on disc during the years. It asserts thoroughly for his keyboard wizardry and uncanny musical gifts. I must confess his recordings - and his live appearances as well - always exert a fabulous halo, a kind of musical flamboyance that enraptures his audiences. You may resonate with them or not, but you can't ignore them. They never let you aloof, but challenge your musical disposition. What a meaningful virtuosity and mighty musicianship does Kissin put in these finger-bending lisztian oeuvres! Take, for instance, the five Transcendental Etudes S 139 included in this compilation (especially, No.10 & No.8 "Wilde Jagd") or the sparkling transcriptions after Schubert (full of lovely melodies and effective embellishments)!

Spanning almost twenty years, these recordings (some of them live captures) prove that Kissin's youthful pianism still exhibits an unfailingly playfulness and a seductive sense of grandeur, in the style of the old-times Russian virtuosos. In this anniversary Liszt year (200 years since his birth), RCA Red Seal label pays an affectionate tribute to the great romantic composer by issuing a wondrous compilation signed by one of the greatest living pianists.

Deep bow, Franz Liszt! Happy birthday Zhenya!

3.0 out of 5 stars Performances vary. 27 April 2013
By William L. Danek - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a combination of "live" and studio recordings. Even Kissin is best in the studio where retakes are possible. In concert his fingering gets the best of him and he tends to slur passages while playing too loud. The selections from his Carnegie Hall debut in 1990 are excellent as was his playing throughout that event where he exhibited great understanding and feeling for the compositions.
5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful! 6 April 2014

Evgeny Kissin is a powerful performer and artist. I have never enjoyed Liszt more and plan to explore more of Kissin's works.
