Mariss Jansons and Evgeny Kissin
This concert with Mariss Jansons is in a sense a late-Romantic family reunion: Richard Wagner’s Rienzi overture will be presented alongside the triumphant First Piano Concerto by his father-in-law, Franz Liszt. His musical “descendant”, Richard Strauss, in turn, perfected the symphonic poem originally developed by Liszt, such as the famous Also sprach Zarathustra which is also performed in this concert. The evening’s soloist is Evgeny Kissin, one of the great pianists of our time.
