...For those who "can't stand" his playing (you know who you are) here is a little something for you to look at & listen to--A performance of the Rach II (plus encores)on video---complete--50min+. I really don't think you can honestly dismiss Mr. Kissin so easily after you watch this. He might not be your "cup of tea" as a pianist, but the man can play...

Kissin's 'Wanderer' Fantasy on DG is one of the best that I have heard so is his Chopin 24 Preludes. He certainly IS "my cup of tea" to savor...

Aw, I could do THAT...... wink

But seriously, very nice performance. I can't take anything away from the man's ability.

Some of my favourite recordings are by Kissin. His Prokofiev III is glittering and his 12th Hungarian Rhapsody is absolutely definitive smile I think I saw that performance live on the BBC (can't download the whole thing, but does he make a very minor splodge near the end? And looks a bit irritated at it). That was a great performance, and he played two Rach preludes as encores and brought the house down.

Dear MatD,
I just downloaded the entire performance(which took 3 hours to do.) and watched it. I like his "swan like" gracefullness that he has when he is playing, and I thought it was an excellent performance.
Thanks,
Allen

I just noticed that the conductor is Andrew Davis. Andrew himself is also quite an accomplished pianist. What a beautiful performance! What collaboration! Thanks, Mat!

I normally don't take ti Kissin's playing, but that was actually quite nice. Thanks for sharing it.
