Pavel Kolesnikov’s deep affinity with the music of Chopin is once again on display in a program of impromptus, waltzes, and mazurkas. Immaculate performances—and an intelligently planned recital, which builds towards the epic F minor Fantasy—can only enhance the listener’s appreciation of this much-loved repertoire. “Pavel Kolesnikov is an engrossing musician. He is perhaps the most introspective and meditative pianist that I know of, and with his deep and delicate sensitivity to sound, he is able to bring out a sophisticated gradation of colours particularly in the quieter ranges of the instrument. He is a poet of the piano, rather than, say, a novelist or a storyteller.” (Bachtrack, 2018)
