Intelligence & Imagination
»This is the kind of serious, intelligent and virtuosic music-making that keeps classical music alive.« says The Observer on Kirill Gerstein. The pianist’s heritage combines the traditions of Russian, American and Central European music-making with an insatiable curiosity. These qualities have led him to explore a huge spectrum of repertoire both new and old. Gerstein's playing is distinguished by a ferocious technique and discerning intelligence, matched with an energetic, imaginative musical presence that places him at the top of his profession. Together with the Camerata Salzburg and its typical »Salzburg Mozart sound,« Gerstein explores the Salzburg master's Piano Concerto in G Major K 453.
Schubert's Fifth Symphony, which will be performed by the Camerata Salzburg under the direction of Andrew Manze, is characterized by downright »classical« Mozartian cheerfulness.
