Notes & Reviews:

Few classical artists have made so spectacular an initial impact upon public - even global - consciousness as the pianist Evgeny Kissin, when in 1984 at the age of 12 he gave both piano concertos by Chopin in a single concert at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory. His fame was assured, and from there on his reputation preceded him as a young, sublimely gifted virtuoso possessed of the most brilliant technique, seemingly natural musical touch and preternatural confidence. All those assets can be heard to advantage in some popular - and more formidable works by his countrymen, from the glittering display vehicles written by Shostakovich and Prokofiev to the powerful sweep of Tchaikovsky's ever-popular First Concerto. Of course Kissin has gone on to perform and indeed record these works - he is now 40, a British citizen for the last nine years - several times since, but the early recordings retain a bravado and unselfconscious vigor that infects every performance with appealing zest and sometimes astonishing assurance.
