In 2020 Evgeny Kissin was awarded the price of the Klavier-Festival Ruhr. In his laudatory speech following the award ceremony in 2021, music critic Wolfram Goertz praised the world piano star for his “spectacularly earnest” approach to piano playing: “What is fascinating about his art is that it has still preserved its immediacy.”
This concrete, immediate rapport with music and with the audience will once more be evident in Wuppertal, when Evgeny Kissin shall return to perform for the seventh time at the Klavier-Festival Ruhr, with works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin.
