Event Details

Tonight, Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov makes his debut in the International Piano Series. Described as ‘a poet of the keyboard’ (The Guardian), he has been winning hearts around the world through his performances. Commenting on his London recital debut in 2014, The Telegraph noted that it was ‘one of the most memorable of such occasions London has witnessed in a while.’ read less Brahms’ late Intermezzi, Op.117, form the framework of Kolesnikov’s thoughtful programme. The first half of his recital juxtaposes the first of these introspective works with Beethoven’s early Op.7 Sonata, in the same key of E flat. Three quietly reflective miniatures by Tchaikovsky open the second half. Though lesser known than that of his famous nephew Francois, Louis Couperin’s music is imbued with inventiveness and a reflective melancholy – making an intriguing coupling with the second and third of Brahms’ Op.117 Intermezzi.
