An Evening Of Scriabin And Rachmaninov: Andrey Gugnin In Recital

An Evening of Scriabin and Rachmaninov: Andrey Gugnin in Recital


Known for his lucid touch and shimmering tones, Andrey Gugnin is hailed by the Gramophone as possessing “an extraordinarily versatile and agile technique, which serves an often inspired musical imagination.” Prize winner of several prestigious competitions, such as the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2016 and the 2013 Beethoven International Piano Competition in Vienna, he has performed on prestigious stages worldwide and gained a stellar reputation as a passionate and virtuosic pianist. In 2020, the BBC Music Magazine named Gugnin the winner of the Instrumental Award for his Shostakovich album with Hyperion Records.

In his Hong Kong debut, Gugnin leads us to venture into the most delicate and intense realms of the human psyche with select works by Scriabin and Rachmaninov, two late romantics who struck an exquisite balance between tradition and revolution. The audience will be absorbed in a capricious frenzy with waves of impassioned sentiments, ranging from bittersweet love to ferocious agony. Join us on this thrill ride!
