Roy Thomson Hall presents
After two critically acclaimed, sold-out performances at Roy Thomson Hall in 2015 and 2018, one of the world’s greatest living pianists, Evgeny Kissin, returns to Toronto in spring 2020.
Kissin’s musicality, extraordinary virtuosity, and the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, have earned him the veneration and admiration deserved only by one of the most gifted classical pianists of his generation and arguably, generations past. In demand all over the world, Kissin has appeared with many of the world’s great conductors, including Abbado, Ashkenazy, Barenboim, Dohnanyi, Giulini, Levine, Maazel, Muti and Ozawa, as well as all of the world’s greatest orchestras.
