Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin, first heard at the Pierre Boulez Saal in the opening concert in March 2017, has been a regular guest in Berlin’s new concert hall ever since. For his solo recital, in addition to works by Brahms and Prokofiev, he has chosen the stylistically groundbreaking First Sonata by 21-year-old Pierre Boulez and the piano arrangement of Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony by Eduard Steuermann, one of the composer’s students.
