5 stars for Pavel Kolesnikov

Thursday 16 January 2014


RCM pianist Pavel Kolesnikov has received a 5 star review from The Telegraph for his debut at London’s Wigmore Hall.

The recital, which took place on Sunday 12 January 2013, was described in the review as “one of the most memorable of such occasions London has witnessed in a while”, with reviewer John Allison praising the “spellbinding beauty” of Pavel’s playing.

The Russian pianist is no stranger to success, having won the first prize at the highly prestigious Honens International Piano Competition in 2012.

Pavel can be seen performing as the first pianist in footage of this RCM Piano Masterclass with András Schiff, and in the RCM’s short film about the four-hand piano version of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

The full review of Pavel’s recital can be read on The Telegraph’s website.
