Pianist Valentina Lisitsa in Recital
The spectacularly exciting Valentina Lisitsa has performed in venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Royal Albert Hall and the Musikverein, but Miami is where her dazzling career first took flight – as Gold Medalist (with husband Alexei Kuznetsoff) in the 1991 Dranoff Two Piano Competition and as a recording artist on Miami’s Audiofon label.
Lisitsa’s Miami "homecoming” recital includes works featured in performance videos on her YouTube channel, which has received more than 55 million views and earned the Ukrainian-born and trained virtuosa a pop-star like international following.
