A tantalizing collection of snippets.
—The Times Literary Supplement
[Kissin] is a born entertainer.
As a piece of literature, it’s as eccentric-and also as honest-as those of us who know him would expect.
—BBC Music Magazine
Memoirs and Reflections. . . . is a blend of some of the highlights of his life, musical and otherwise, along with Kissin’s thoughts on a variety of topics from the nature of humanity to the meaning of liberty in Russia to his views of other musicians
EVGENY KISSIN was born in Moscow in 1971 and began to play by ear and improvise on the piano at the age of two. At six years old, he entered the Gnessin School of Music, a special school for gifted children where he was a student of Anna Pavlovna Kantor. He made his concert debut playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto K.466 as a ten year old, and gave his first solo recital one year later. Kissin first performed outside Russia in 1985, and since then he has been showered with awards from around the world. He has been a British citizen since 2002, and an Israeli citizen since 2013.
