Yiddish event in the Portuguese Synagogue  Thursday 19 June 2014 20.00

Evgeny Kissin

The Jewish Cultural Quarter regularly presents concerts in the Portuguese Synagogue. You can enjoy a wide range of musical styles in a synagogue illuminated by hundreds of candles. The Portuguese Synagogue is unheated, and it can be cool inside even in the spring, so make sure to bring a coat with you! The concerts are about one hour long. Grachtenfestival Foto: Ronald Knapp

Evgeny Kissin
The world famous pianist Evgeny Kissin is in Amsterdam for a concert at the Concertgebouw. At the Portuguese Synagogue he will host a special Yiddish event.

Evgeny Kissin's musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have earned him the veneration and admiration deserved only by one of the most gifted classical pianists of his generation and, arguably, generations past.  

Note: Evgeny Kissin will not play the piano this evening
