For four whole decades, the legendary pianist Ivo Pogorelich has continued to make an invaluable contribution to classical music. His innovative and highly suggestive interpretations have served, like few others in our time, to broaden the horizons, understanding and experience of pianistic literature. Pogorelich exhibits the spirit of an explorer, which is measured by the lucidity with which he discovers new expressive abilities of music, and reflected in pianism of the highest aesthetic value, unique virtuosity and technical mastery. His uncompromising artistic standards and deep commitment to finding the ideality of musical expression are what allow Pogorelich to deliver remarkably authentic and extraordinarily compelling performances of sublime artistic power.
“He played each note exactly, with such a feeling, such expression, he was an entire orchestra – it was as if he played 200 years ahead of our time…”
— NEW YORK TIMES
“The ordinary and the easily consumable are simply not an option for this visionary of the 88 keys.”
— SALZBURGER NACHRICHTEN
“Mr. Pogorelich is clearly one of the more compelling performers before the public today”

At the very end of this unusual year in which we all experienced different and unfamiliar circumstances, I would like to express my strong hope that the upcoming year will bring us back to normality and back to each other.
