Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Op. 21
Études, Op. 10
Études, Op. 25

More than any other pianists on the contemporary classical music scene, Kissin has a special association with Chopin. Joined by the Verbier Festival Orchestra and its musical director Charles Dutoit, he performs the beloved French-Polish composer’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a jewel of the Romantic repertoire.

Kissin follows the concerto with a performance of selected Études for solo piano from the Chopin’s Op. 10 and Op. 25. Acclaimed for his musicality and rich color palette, the pianist delivers here a stunning performance that was met with 15 straight minutes of standing ovation.
