Classical Pianist Grisha Krivchenia
March 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Many pianists possess the technical ability to play the works of the master composers, but more often than not, their performances possess a certain undeniable sterility. On Darkness & Light, Grisha Krivchenia doesn’t simply recite the works of Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt, he delivers them with impact and emotion. From the fluttering keys of Chopin’s “Etude, Opus 25 No. 1” to a trio of movements from Beethoven’s powerful “Sonata No. 14,” every note is presented with an endearing admiration and appreciation. What’s most impressive about Darkness & Light is that when Krivchenia transitions from Liszt’s “Vallee D’obermann” to his own “Concert Etude No. 1,” there’s no sudden drop-off in quality. In fact, Krivchenia’s three compositions included here are all rather gorgeous and fit beautifully within the overall stunning melancholy that ties together the works of the masters. (JL)
