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 Prize Laureate of the Honens Prize for Piano in 2012, Kolesnikov has been winning hearts around the world. A live recording of his prize-winning performances was released on the Honens label in March 2013, about which the BBC Music Magazine wrote “tremendous clarity, unfailing musicality and considerable beauty”. This June, his debut studio recording was released on the Hyperion label to critical acclaim. The Sunday Times described his playing on this all-Tchaikovsky disc as having “affection and élan”. Significant recital and festival appearances resulting from the Honens Prize include Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Berlin’s Konzerthaus, the Louvre (Paris), Vancouver Recital Society, La Jolla Music Society, Spoleto Festival USA, Canada’s Ottawa ChamberFest and Banff Summer Festival, and the United Kingdom’s Plush Music Festival. Recent and upcoming orchestral appearances include Russia’s National Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira and Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

London-based Pavel Kolesnikov was born in Siberia into a family of scientists. He studied both the piano and violin for ten years, before concentrating solely on the piano. He has studied 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 thanks to the generous support of Mr Christopher D Budden, the RCM Scholarship Foundation and Hattori Foundation. Pavel is the Benjamin Britten Foundation Fellow for 2015-2016 continuing his studies at RCM on the Artist Diploma course. Pavel Kolesnikov was named one of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists for 2014 to 2016, a scheme that provides opportunities to develop live and recorded performances, including broadcasts with the BBC orchestras. He has performed Ravel Piano Concerto for the Left Hand with the BBC Philharmonic and also recorded P?rt Lamente with them. He has appeared on BBC Proms Extra accompanying baritone Benjamin Appl, and will appear at the Belfast Festival giving a solo recital, a recital again with Appl, and also in a concert with the SCO Winds. In December 2015 appeared with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a studio performance of Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1. During 2016 he continues to give concerts in Canada, performing with the Toronto Symphony and Calgary Philharmonic, and he makes return appearances at London’s Wigmore Hall. He will also make his debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in a studio performance of Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, and his Proms debut in August 2016 with Tchaikovsky’s 2nd piano concerto.
