Born in Moscow in 1971, Evgeny Kissin made his name early with a talent that far surpassed the typical Wunderkind. After many early milestones including an appearance playing both Chopin concertos with the Moscow State Philharmonic at age twelve, he has become — seemingly without difficulty — one of the finest adult pianists on the world's concert stages.
Kissin’s amazing finger dexterity and power have drawn great acclaim and stationed him as a child of the great Russian piano tradition. His performances are dramatic and beautifully judged from a musical standpoint, and Kissin delivers every performance with an electrifying stage personality. He tours widely, and his records are eagerly awaited by fans around the world.
Kissin has been a Steinway Artist since 1990.
