75th Birthday Celebration Concert

At the age of eleven the pianist Stephen Bishop Kovachevich made his public concert debut and since then he has built a respectable career and has captured the hearts of music lovers throughout the world. He performed in almost all the countries in Europe, the United States, the Far East, Australia, New Zealand and South America. As conductor and pianist he collaborated with many celebrated ensembles and particularly valuable are his collaborations with other remarkable soloists including Jacqueline du Pré, Martha Argerich, Steven Isserlis, Nigel Kennedy, Lynn Harrell, Sarah Chang, Gautier Capuçon and Emmanuel Pahud.  This magnificent musician, who enjoys unanimous admiration of the critics for his interpretations of Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart and Schubert, will celebrate its 75th birthday with the subscribers of the Saturday at Lisinski series! On a piano, of course!

Stephen Kovacevich is a master to be admired; faithful to the spirit of the music yet always individual, his pianistic artistry reside in his sculpted sound…. utmost focus and uniquely attractive, variegated touch.
