Overview

From Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 27 to Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 2, Evgeny Kissin presents an expressively wide-ranging programme full of deft emotional and harmonic dovetails.

Dated 1814, Beethoven’s two-movement Piano Sonata No. 27 was his first with movement headings in German rather than Italian. Designating character rather than tempo, they call for the E minor first movement to be played ‘with liveliness, and with feeling and expression throughout,’ while the E major second should be taken ‘not too swiftly, and conveyed in a singing manner.’ Chopin’s wistful F sharp minor Nocturne of 1841 sets a recitative-like central section within flowing outer ends. His sombre Fantaisie in F minor from the same year also contains improvisatory-feeling sections, along with echoes of a Polish revolution song from the November Uprising. Brahms’s four literary-influenced early-career Ballades of 1854, arranged in two major-minor pairs (D and B), open on a darkly ancient-sounding creation inspired by the Scottish poem, ‘Edward’. There’s a more acerbic bite to the D minor darkness of Prokofiev’s tense Second Piano Sonata, which premiered in 1914. Stylistically wide-ranging, its third movement appears to suggest the Dies irae, while the Vivace finale contains jazz influences.

Location   Chemin de Plan Pra

Salle des Combins is the Verbier Festival’s main concert hall. It normally seats 1,419. Each row is on a separate tier, which guarantees an excellent view of the stage. Improvements to the soundproofing and heat insulation make this a very high-quality non-permanent venue. All of the Festival’s symphonic concerts, operas, large world music, jazz, dance events and some recitals are presented here.
