Krystian Zimerman - Interview

Krystian Zimerman joined forces with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra last December in Beethoven's five piano concertos. Their spellbinding performances, streamed on DG Stage from LSO St Luke's and recorded live by Deutsche Grammophon, harvested a bumper crop of critical superlatives. Here was "history in the making", wrote The Times in its five-star review, while Bachtrack noted, "Purity and clarity are hallmarks of Zimerman's playing and there was an almost aristocratic composure to his phrasing and a velvet touch … Everything was meticulous, not … a quaver out of place."
