“Pavel Kolesnikov already has the ease and authority that normally only comes with decades of experience,” the British Telegraph wrote in praise of the now 34-year-old artist.

The Siberian-born pianist was not born into a career as a pianist: Unlike so many of his colleagues, he does not come from a family of musicians; his parents are scientists. For a long time, he could not decide between the violin and the piano – he finally studied in Brussels with the legendary Maria João Pires, among others. His sensational victory at the Honens International Piano Competition in Canada in 2012 paved the way for his global career. Despite this, he is still considered an insider tip on the European mainland, while he is celebrated on the big stages in his adopted home country of England and in Asia. He is dedicating his recital in Schwelm to two of his favourite composers: Chopin and Schubert.

Pavel Kolesnikov

In 2012 pianist Pavel Kolesnikov became a sensation at the Honens International Piano Competition when he took home the world’s largest piano prize. The London-based pianist 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 recipient of the Milstein Medal and is the RCM Benjamin Britten Piano Fellow, and was a member of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists from 2014 to 2016.
