The New York Concert - Evgeny Kissin & Emerson Quartet
Evgeny Kissin (piano)
• Pianist Evgeny Kissin is teaming up with Emerson String Quartet for a chamber music live recording from sold out Carnegie Hall, in April 2018.
• A super star fusion of musicians performing mesmerizing repertoire: an exquisite Fauré, a stormy Mozart and a sweepingly sensual Dvořák.
• This is a rare moment in which one of the world’s most acclaimed pianists can be witnessed as a chamber musician. Thus, this recording, presenting Kissin and the ESQ performing chamber music repertoire, constitutes a novelty in DG’s catalogue.
• With 9 Grammy Awards and 3 Gramophone Awards to date, the Emerson String Quartet bestrides the world of chamber music like a colossus.
• They are without a question among the world’s most impressive string quartets and, founded in 1976, playing today as passionate and inquisitive as ever.
• The idea to play together, reaches back a couple of years, and has been immediately embraced enthusiastically by all five musicians.
• They then went on a tour including concerts in Paris, Munich, Vienna, Boston and New York in 2018.
