Famed Concert Pianist Evgeny Kissin publishes first compositions
"As soon as I started playing other people's music by ear which was when I was 2 years and 2 months old, I started improvising my own music as well. As a child I used to compose a lot. As soon as I learned how to read music, I started writing down my own compositions so I tried different styles, different instruments.."
".. and then came a point when I stopped hearing my own music in my head. I didn't know what to do next. That coincided with the time when my activities as a concert pianist began to increase. And then a few years ago, I began to feel an urge to compose again."
