I know, we couldn’t wait. The festive season is not due to start for another day and a half, but we have obtained for you a sample of Evgeny Kissin playing Chopin at the Verbier Festival. It’s not due to be released on until the new year, but Slipped Disc has been given an early free pass … so watch … enjoy…. send in your responses…

Evgeny Kissin plays Chopin on


  • Michael P Scott says:

    Well, thanks Norman; thanks Medici; thanks Verbier.

    What can one say about Mr. Kissin’s playing other than he’s realized and exceeded the potential everyone saw in him as a 12 year old. And he’s done it sans drama, affectation, outrageous outfits or any other form of controversy.

    He is, without doubt, among the very best atop today’s pianistic Mt. Olympus — and I expect he’ll stay there for the rest of his life.

    I am also very thankful for the increasing perfection brings to these performances. In so many ways, I’m finding watching and listening to be ever so much more enjoyable than even being there.

    Best Christmas present so far, Norman. Thank you.
