Kissin is received with state honours in Armenia

The president of Armenia, Serzh Sargysan, called in the visiting pianist for a meeting yesterday.

He thanked Evgeny Kissin for being one of the few world artists to commemorate the centenary of the Armenian genocide, an atrocity still denied by its Turkish neighbours.

  • Good on Kissin, but I’m not sure about his being seen with Sargsyan, also a highly corrupt and undemocratic leader of the sort we are well familiar with in that part of the world.

  • Mr. Lebrecht, could you please post your latest WSJ review of Kissin’s memoir book? It it behind the pay wall. Thank you!
