Hailed “as the successor to Russian keyboard lions like Evgeny Kissin, Arcadi Volodos, and … Vladimir Horowitz” (The New York Times), Denis Matsuev has been establishing himself as one of the most sought-after pianists of his generation. Ever since his triumphant victory at the 1998 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, he has been winning acclaim from critics and audiences alike for his combination of stunning virtuosity and clear artistic identity. The dynamic pianist returns to Sanders Theatre for a recital of works by Haydn, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff.
