Hi-Res Booklet
The mysterious virtuoso and world-renowned soloist and recitalist Evgeny Kissin doesn’t often venture into the realm of chamber music. The Emerson Quartet were therefore presented with a unique opportunity when they were offered to do an eight-concert tour of Germany and the United States with the famous pianist. For this album, Deutsche Grammophon decided to record their last performance together at Carnegie Hall in New York on April 27, 2018 and after much deliberation the decision was finally made to perform two major pieces in a minor key. The first is Mozart’s famous Quartet in G minor, and for the second we delve into the world of romanticism with just a hint of nostalgia with the young Gabriel Fauré’s Quartet in C minor. The concert ends with Dvořák’s light-hearted and joyful Quintet in A major, with its undertones of Czech folklore. No musician tried to steal the show as the collective priority seemed to be performing these masterpieces classically. The musicians work together humbly and cooperatively in an intimate atmosphere that feels more like they’re in a living room than a legendary concert hall. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Booklet
A few weeks ago Deutsche Grammophon, the most prestigious German record label in the world, announced with great fanfare the return of Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin within its ranks alongside the pianists Murray Perahia, Krystian Zimerman, Daniil Trifonov, Rafał Blechacz and Seong-Jin Cho. It’s therefore with some trepidation that piano enthusiasts wait for this Beethoven album that proves tempestuous and of astounding mastery, particularly in Appassionata in which the left hand opens up uncanny new areas of expression. This Appassionata could very well fuel some regrets about Deutsche Grammophon’s reluctance to invest in Kissin’s comeback on the yellow label through a proper studio album with coherent sound recordings, rather than gathering a disparate patchwork of live recordings. © TG/Qobuz

The new mark for young musical prodigies is no longer the number of accolades or recordings they can produce at an early age, but whether the enthusiasm surrounding their careers extends into adulthood. Pianist Evgeny Kissin has not only maintained a highly visibly and successful adult performance career, but some of his recordings from the late '80s and early '90s are already being re-released, a testament to his musical maturity at a young age. This compilation, entitled Fantasy, showcases much of Kissin's technical and musical acumen. Schubert and Brahms dominate the first disc, with the infrequently recorded Liszt transcriptions of six Schubert lieder starting off the album. Kissin's playing accentuates not only the virtuosic demands that Schubert/Liszt make of the pianist, but also take care to maintain the original vocal qualities of the music. The Schubert "Wanderer" Fantasy, while lacking slightly in the introspection achieved by Alfred Brendel, is far from trite. The second disc begins with the Tchaikovsky First Concerto accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic and Herbert von Karajan, one of Kissin's many supporters. Here, though, Kissin shows a little bit of his youth and inexperience with a somewhat slow, plodding rendition. The third movement in particular is far from the true Allegro con fuoco that can be heard in more seasoned performances of Van Cliburn or Volodos. Still, this is a recording of one of the titans of the concerto literature made by an artist of just 17 years, who is now undoubtedly capable of delivering many of the qualities he may have lacked as a younger man. © TiVo
