Recital at Theatre des Bouffes du Nord, Paris / Haydn, Schumann, Mussorgsky

“The second half was excellent. Kozhukin gave a dazzling performance of his compatriot Modest Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an exhibition’; creating a cosmic and grandiose vision with his resourceful playing, light touch and a palette of colours worthy of a young Sviatoslav Richter. Kozhukin attempted to hold back time, offering three encores which all confirmed his future promise: a breathtaking ‘Escalier du diable’ by Ligeti, a powerful performance of Taneïev, and to conclude, a peaceful arrangement of Bach by Siloti. Kozhukin is definitely one to watch.”
