Evgeny Kissin is laureate of the Ruhr Piano Festival 2020

New Year's Concert

Tickets for this concert are available from Thu, 30 April 2020, 10 am.
Arcadi Volodos auf dem Klavierfestival Ruhr 2020

Richard Wagner
Prelude to the First Act of “Lohengrin”

Franz Liszt
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 2 in A major

Béla Bartók
Concerto for Orchestra

Rushing octaves, thundering cascades of chords, and scintillating glissandi all make the finale of Franz Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto a spectacular listening experience. That will certainly be the case when Evgeny Kissin astounds us by effortlessly mastering that challenging tightrope walk. Kissin has long been a passionate adept of Liszt’s two piano concertos, also due to the fact that Anna Kantor, his piano teacher, was in Liszt’s direct line of teaching through several generations of pupils. For the Ruhr Piano Festival New Year’s Concert in 2021, Kissin will once more have a first-rate orchestra at his side: the Frankfurt RSO under the baton of French conductor Alain Altinoglu.
