Pavel Kolesnikov, 2012 Laureate of the Honens Prize for Piano, gave his Wigmore Hall debut at the beginning of 2013. Equally well-suited to the demands of the French Baroque as to the high Romanticism of Tchaikovsky and Chopin, his attentive musicianship yields revelatory results in the music of Louis Couperin. A composer, harpsichordist, organist, and viol player, Couperin was, after his celebrated nephew François, the most famous of the Couperin dynasty and one of the greatest composers of keyboard music of the 17th century.
