Pavel Kolesnikov (piano)

Since becoming Prize Laureate of the Honens Prize for Piano in 2012, Pavel Kolesnikov has been winning hearts around the world. A live recording of his prize-winning performances, released on the Honens Label, was praised by BBC Music Magazine, who hailed its ‘tremendous clarity, unfailing musicality and considerable beauty’. 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 Banff Summer Festival, and the United Kingdom’s Plush Music Festival. Orchestral appearances arranged through Honens’ Artist Development Program include Russia’s National Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira and Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

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.’
