Program

Boasting an abundant supply of what the New York Times describes as “all the indispensable qualities: touch, tone, temperament, taste—the four T's of pianism,” Andreas Klein makes his Ravinia Festival debut with an ambitious program spanning nearly a century and a half of piano repertoire. The Viennese Classicism of Mozart, the classic Romanticism of Brahms, the luminous Impressionism of Ravel and the breathtaking exuberance of Prokofiev—all are within the grasp of this “refined and elegant pianist” (Palm Beach Daily News).

“Klein resembled a sketch artist bringing a scene to life with quick virtuoso strokes and shading.”
