Boris Berezowsky, the winner of the 1990 Tchaikovsky Competition, has gone on to become an international celebrity. This ‘master of the pianissimo’ has an equally superlative command of relaxed virtuosity that leaves audiences dazzled. He makes the technically demanding works seem fresh, elegant and light as a feather. One work on his recital for the 2016 Beethovenfest is an absolute must: Chopin‘s thrillingly tempestuous ‘Revolutionary Etude’ (op. 10, no. 12). Chopin composed it in September 1813, allegedly shattered by the news of Russia‘s bloody suppression of the Warsaw Uprising.
