Kirill Gerstein, piano

4 Duettos, BMV 802-805
Piano Sonata No.2 in F sharp minor Op.2
Transcendental Études

Russian-born pianist Kirill Gerstein doesn’t just play with a lightning virtuosity that recalls the great Russian virtuosi of the past.

He brings poetic insight to everything he touches, and this Liverpool recital programme opens amidst the timeless beauty of Bach before Gerstein scales the everest of romantic pianism: a full performance of Liszt’s jaw-dropping Transcendental Études.
