The Telegraph (London) describes Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov’s playing as having “brilliance, but also a caressing, almost sly intimacy”. Kolesnikov was named Laureate of Calgary’s Honens Prize for Piano in 2012. Amidst a summer of festival appearances, including performances at Spoleto Festival USA, the Ottawa International Chamber Music and Banff Summer Arts Festivals (Canada), the Plush Festival (United Kingdom), Kolesnikov made his debut studio recording for the Hyperion Label. The all-Tchaikovsky disc will be released in May 2014. He gives his Wigmore Hall debut in January before returning to North America for a solo recital at Montreal’s Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur, a performance with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and appearances on Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess series and for California’s La Jolla Music Society. He makes debuts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, at the Louvre in Paris, Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall and Berlin’s Konzerthaus, all in 2014/15. Pavel studies at Moscow State Conservatory with Sergey Dorensky, at London’s Royal College of Music with Norma Fisher and at Brussels’ Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel with Maria João Pires. He calls London home.
