Evgeni Koroliov is a phenomenon of international music who wins over his audience without any ‘fireworks displays’ but with extraordinary artistic and interpretational abilities, and with a fascinating spiritual comprehension of the works being interpreted. He is particularly attracted to Bach. His CD ‘The Art of Fugue’ elicited a memorable reaction from composer György Ligeti: “If I could take with me a single piece of music to an uninhabited island, it would be Koroliov’s Bach recording, because I would listen to it in the midst of starvation and deadly thirst, until my final breath."
