Pianist Pavel Kolesnikov live

Post by Rach3 » Tue Jan 15, 2019 4:57 pm

Live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall , Jan.15,2019. “ Poet of the keyboard “ per The Guardian.Interesting choice of works.

Unusual rubato,tempii in Brahms Op.117, # 1, and not the usual Brahms sound-world. Right into the LvB then , without interruption between the works ; similar playing. Enjoyable performances all, the Couperin,Tchaikovsky rarities:

Brahms: Intermezzo in E flat, Op.117 No.1
Beethoven: Sonata in E flat, Op.7
Interval – 20 mins - Beethoven Octet recording
Brahms: Intermezzo in B flat minor, Op.117 No.2
Louis Couperin: Suite in A; Pavanne in F sharp minor, G.120
Tchaikovsky: Rêverie interrompue, Op.40 No.12; Echo rustique, Op.72 No.13; Polka peu dansante, Op.51 No.2; Dumka (Russian rustic scene), Op.59
Tchaikovsky: Passé lointain, Op.72 No.17;
Brahms: Intermezzo in C sharp minor, Op.117 No.3

Encore : A repeat of the Brahms Op.117, #1.

I give him much credit for evolving,original thinking,but not convincing me always, for some reason,perhaps too much “ poetry “ at times , missing some momentum, edginess and/or darkness? A pianist I do, and will continue to , follow. His website: https://www.pavelkolesnikov.com/
