Leonore Overture No 3, Op 72b
Piano Concerto No 2 in F minor, Op 21
The Master Said, Op 99 (2016) (world première)*
Following Russian wunderkind Pavel Kolesnikov’s Wigmore Hall début in 2014, The Telegraph gave his recital a rare five-star review and called it “one of the most memorable of such occasions London has witnessed in a while.” Prize Laureate of the Honens Prize for Piano in 2012, Kolesnikov has performed around the world and is the recipient of the Milstein Medal, a member of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists, RCM Benjamin Britten Piano Fellow (2015 – 2016) and the winner of Diapason D’Or Award 2016. In his Hong Kong début, Kolesnikov will play Chopin’s Piano Concerto No 2 under the baton of Hong Kong Sinfonietta Music Director Yip Wing-sie.
The concert also features the world première of Alexander Goehr’s The Master Said for narrator and orchestra. Not to be missed.
