Italian Maurizio Pollini is among the great pianists of the world. He has guest-performed at Konserthuset only twice before, and it has been quite some time: in 1990 and 1992. Now he is finally back with a recital that comprises the finale of the 2018/19 season Piano Subscription.
Since winning the extremely prestigious International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw at the age of 20, Maurizio Pollini, born in 1942 in Milan, has been part of the top tier throughout his 60-year career! His repertoire is extensive, and while classical piano literature is naturally part of its core, Pollini is also noted for his interpretations of the great composers of the late twentieth century and of our time.
Maurizio Pollini’s unparalleled technique, refinement and integrity have permeated his long career on world stages, as well as his rich discography. In conjunction with Pollini’s seventy-fifth birthday, record label Deutsche Grammophon released a boxed set of the collected recordings for the label – including 55 albums and 3 DVDs. His latest record, released in February 2018, includes interpretations of Debussy’s Préludes.
