A paragon of virtuosity and musical excellence, Maurizio Pollini has ranked among the world’s top instrumental soloists for nearly a generation. Since winning the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition in 1960, his extensive touring schedule has taken him to all the major musical centers of Europe, America, and Asia. “The sheer virtuosity of
Pollini’s playing remains astounding” (Chicago Sun-Times).
This performance is made possible by generous support from Betsy and Robert Feinberg.
