Kasparas Uinskas (piano, Lithuania), Evgeni Bozhanov (piano, Bulgaria / Germany)

Programme: Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Rachmaninov

Two distinguished pianists, Kasparas Uinskas and Evgeni Bozhanov, most frequently perform as soloists but several years ago they decided to prepare a programme as a piano duo. This idea proved highly successful and they continued to appear together, drawing accolades from the audience in various Lithuanian venues. Very soon the audience in Klaipėda will have yet another opportunity to witness a lively creative dialogue involving two uniquely talented and equally adept partners. Their appearance in concert will close the week of recording sessions at the Klaipėda Concert Hall, during which they attempted to commit the works by Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Ravel to their new disc.

Critics praise Bozhanov’s ability “to produce more nuances of tone in a measure of music than most pianists find in a lifetime” (Scott Cantrell of Dallas Morning News), while Uinskas is lauded for having “all the ingredients of a great pianist and musician” (New York Concert Review) and playing “with a breathtaking sensitivity that was absolutely magical” (Seen and Heard International). But what do you thing about this virtuoso duo? We invite you to attend this concert and form your own opinion. Even more so if you did not have a chance to hear them live before.

Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Rachmaninov
