Evgeny Kissin is not only a phenomenally active, high-strung, and almost unfailing pianist
, he also declaims poetry in public -- in Yiddish
he explains, in Yiddish, why and how he learned to do the one, and the other (English subtitles included).
Bonus: Grieg's piano concerto
from the most recent Berlin New Year Concert (mvt. 1 and 2 unfortunately out of sync).
