Sergei Kvitko, acclaimed pianist, composer, recording engineer and producer, presents a solo piano recital that includes Enrique Granados’ rarely performed, exquisitely passionate and profoundly poetic suite Escenas Romanticas; Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition – the monumental interpretation, recording of which American Record Guide proclaimed “among the best ever made,” and his original virtuoso transcriptions of Bach’s Prelude in C Major – an unexpectedly romantic take on the famous piece; Mussorgsky’s Trepak from “Songs and Dances of Death”- dark and mysterious song transcribed for solo piano in tradition of Schubert-Liszt arrangements; and Eugène Ysaÿe’s Solo Violin Sonata No. 3 “Ballade” – violin bravura masterpiece in its first ever daring arrangement for piano. For the performance of Granados’ Escenas Románticas, Sergei will be joined on the stage by Lucas Segovia and Kara Zimmerman, the stars of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, for a unique mini-ballet choreographed exclusively for this collaboration.
