Piano Artistry from Konstantin Lifschitz

In 1994, Russian pianist Konstantin Lifschitz burst onto the international scene with a recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. The CD received a Grammy nomination and was praised as the most convincing Bach interpretation since Glenn Gould. Lifschitz was only 17.

"Whatever he sees or imagines in the music," wrote a Boston Globe reviewer of the young prodigy, "he can realize without obstacle at the piano." Today, at 28, Lifschitz is celebrated for his exquisite musical sensibility and nuanced playing. He performs Chopin's Waltz No. 1 and Liszt's Paganini Etude No.6 in NPR's Studio 4.
