Notes & Reviews:
Evgeny Igorevich Kissin was born in Moscow on the 10th of October 1971. He started to play the piano at aged two, as soon as he was tall enough to reach the keyboard, and he has not looked back from that day to this. His is a very rare story of continued success that has had the simultaneous blessing of critics, the public and musicians alike. This film by Christopher Nupen, creator of so many other classics, is a film that shows Kissin in preparation, interview, rehearsal and performance, with several dazzling performances shot live on stage, in true concert conditions. It also contains all the encores from Kissin's memorable Promenade concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in August, 1997. This was the first Prom in its 103-year history to be given by a solo recitalist and it attracted the biggest audience in all those 103 years; very nearly six thousand people.
