When Michael Korstick released his début CD in 1998 with the three last Beethoven sonatas, he was already 43 years old. The recording, however, not only provided the cornerstone for a new benchmark recording of the complete Beethoven sonatas; born in Cologne, Korstick may have started late, but he has become one of the leading pianists of our time. His wide-ranging discography has been crowned with a series of awards, including the German Record Critics’ Prize. One of Korstick’s most beloved composers is the Russian Dmitri Kabalevsky, a contemporary of Prokofiev and Shostakovich. Korstick has recorded Kabalevsky’s piano concertos and sonatas on CD: now he presents Kabalevsky’s technically challenging 24 Préludes op. 38, pervaded with the flavor of Russian folk songs. Before the intermission we will get to hear Korstick as the well-known sensitive Beethoven interpreter that he is, always faithful to the original score: here he will feature two rarely performed variation cycles before he once more proves his reputation as a gifted Beethoven lyricist in the late, highly poetic Sonata in A Flat Major.
