With a storied career spanning six decades, legendary Italian classical pianist Maurizio Pollini is considered one of the great pianists of our time. At over 70 years of age, the virtuoso has battled bouts of illness and no longer plays regularly, making any appearance an exquisite rarity.
A foremost interpreter of Chopin's works, Pollini has a broad repertoire that also encompasses the romantic era as well as contemporary composers. The veteran performer is held in high regard for his ability to make melodies sore amidst crystalline rhythms, a technical brilliance that underlies an emotional sensitivity that has not dimmed over the years, but remains as bright as ever.
