Piano virtuoso Maxim Bernard is celebrating the anniversary of a legendary performance, given 30 years ago by Vladimir Horowitz in Moscow after having fled the communist state over 60 years earlier. The vast majority of the tickets for the Moscow performance were reserved for the Soviet elite, and few were made available to the general public. This concert was seen as an event of both musical, and political significance.
Maxim Bernard’s talent is simply ideal to bring back to life this extremely colorful program from the wizard of the keyboard, in which bravura, charm, style, elegance and exquisite poetry are combined.
