1st Printing. Signed. 2 pages. Published in 1998. Rare Evgeny Kissin collectible set. A copy of the Sony Classical/BMG Classical Compact Disc (CD) recording of three major piano works: Beethoven's Sonata in C-sharp minor, "Moonlight", Franck's "Prelude Choral et Fugue", and Brahms' "Variations on a Theme by Paganini, Op. 35", signed by Evgeny Kissin. It comes with a pristine copy of the Promotional Souvenir (which has exactly the same cover image as the CD), also signed by Kissin. The Souvenir Material measures 4 X 6 inches. The first release on CD by BMG. The release is now scarce. Presents Evgeny Kissin's "Beethoven Franck Brahms". Kissin's performance of the (overplayed) Beethoven sonata is definitive. It is certainly the best available on CD today, a mature and profoundly moving performance by the Russian virtuoso, who is in a "genealogical" line with Artur Rubinstein and Maurizio Pollini, his two predecessor-pianists, with whom he has the most in common: Greatness. Like Rubinstein and Pollini, Kissin's playing of Chopin definitively has not prevented him from playing just about everybody else beautifully. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Evgeny Kissin collectors. This copy of the BMG Classical Compact Disc (CD) recording of the Beethoven, Franck, and Brahms masterpieces is very prominently and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen marker in front by Evgeny Kissin. It comes with a pristine copy of the 4 X 6 inch Promotional Souvenir Material (which shows the same image as the CD) that is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Evgeny Kissin. Please note: In the case of the latter, he signed his name in full ("Evgeny Kissin") instead of just "Kissin". It is a rare vintage signature as such, when demand for his signature was less fervently "long-lines-around-the-block" that it is today. This title is a CD classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed CD and Promotional Souvenir Material available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare signed set thus. The greatest pianist of our time. A fine set. (SEE ALSO OTHER EVGENY KISSIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 19880
