First Solo Recital Recording In Over A Decade On 180g Vinyl 3LP!

After a break of 25 years, Evgeny Kissin signed a new exclusive contract with the Yellow Label. The partnership resumes with Beethoven, Kissin's first solo recital recording in over a decade, out now on vinyl. With a program handpicked by Kissin from recitals given over the past decade, the 3-LP set features Piano Sonatas No.14 Op.27 No.2, "Moonlight" and No.23 Op.57, "Appassionata," as well as 32 Variations in C minor WoO 80 and Piano Sonata No.32 Op.111, the composer's final work in the genre.

"These recordings were made in the moment of performance," observes the pianist. "Live recordings always surpass studio albums for me, because I feel more inspired when playing for an audience. It means a lot to me to be able to share the spirit of that live experience with others."

"It has been clear for some time that Evgeny Kissin is a Beethoven player of rare pedigree and distinction, the finest Russian-born Beethovenian since Emil Gilels" - Gramophone
