Press Release from the New York Philharmonic
The Wall Street Journal calls Kirill Gerstein’s recent recording of the 1879 version of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 “exquisitely nuanced and breathlessly virtuosic.” In the article “Shining New Light on an Old Standard”, Stuart Isacoff talks to Kirill about the history of the popular concerto and how the composer-authorized second version of the work came to be recorded.
In advance of his performance in Zankel Hall on Monday, March 9, pianist Kirill Gerstein discusses what inspired his program of Liszt’s complete Transcendental Etudes, Bach’s Three-Part Inventions, and selections from Bartók’s Mikrokosmos.
