Pavel Kolesnikov

Pavel Kolesnikov
Honens Prize Laureate

Following Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov’s Wigmore Hall debut in January 2014, The Telegraph gave his recital a rare five-star review and called it “one of the most memorable of such occasions London has witnessed in a while.” Since becoming Laureate of the Honens Prize for Piano in 2012, Kolesnikov has been winning hearts around the world. He continues this season with notable performances for Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess series, California’s La Jolla Music Society and the Vancouver Recital Society. In 2014/15, he makes his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Berlin’s Konzerthaus and the Louvre (Paris). His all-Tchaikovsky debut studio recording—made possible through the Honens Prize—will be released in May on the Hyperion Label. Pavel Kolesnikov 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.
