Why See Itzhak Perlman and Evgeny Kissin?
Perlman & Kissin Perform Brahms & Beethoven
Two modern classical icons unite on the Kennedy Center Concert Hall stage for a hotly anticipated one-night-only program of beloved chamber works by Brahms and Beethoven. Israeli-American violin maestro Itzhak Perlman, world renowned champion of Baroque, Classical and Romantic music, is no stranger to performing with Evgeny Kissin, the ivory-tickling child prodigy turned adult virtuoso who went on to win two Grammys for his arresting interpretations of Scriabin, Medtner, Stravinsky and Prokofiev.
Together, the dynamic duo will start the evening off with Brahms' heartwarming Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 2, a blissful three-movement piece filled with sweet, lyrically melodies that build to a main theme with velvety contours so rich its customarily played on the violin's warm G string. This is followed by Beethoven's devilishly difficult Violin Sonata No. 9, a sweeping work filled with powerful piano flourishes and tarantella-esque rhythms. Additional works are still to be announced.
Performance date: 28 April 2019
