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 currently 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, thanks to generous support from Mr Christopher D Budden, the RCM Scholarship Foundation and the Hattori Foundation.
Pavel Kolesnikov writes: ‘I am extremely grateful to my teachers, without whom I would never have achieved many things; I always felt that they came into my life at the right moment. They confirmed my belief that there is no stronger power than sincerity, and that being true to yourself is the only possible form of existence—in art as in life.’
