  • Kirill Gerstein piano

‘One seldom sees an audience erupt with such spontaneous delight,’ observed the Independent following Kirill Gerstein’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto at the 2016 BBC Proms.

The Russian-born American pianist’s compelling musicianship, richly informed by his experience as a classical and jazz performer, was recognised in 2010 when he became the sixth recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award.

Gerstein’s latest Wigmore Hall programme runs the wide gamut of his musical interests, spanning everything from Bach’s four enigmatic Duets from the Clavier-Übung III, to the Piano Sonata in F minor Op. 14, written while the young Schumann was suffering the pain of separation from his beloved Clara Wieck.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
        • 4 Duettos from Clavier-Ubung (Book III) BWV802-805
  • Claude Debussy (1862-1918)
        • Préludes Book I
  • Interval
  • Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)
        • Waltz in A flat major Op. 42
        • Waltz in E minor Op. posth.
        • Waltz in F major Op. 34 No. 3
  • Thomas Adès (b.1971)
        • Mazurkas Op. 27
  • Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
        • Sonata No. 2 in F sharp minor Op. 2
