Russian Philharmonic (of Novosibirsk)

Novosibirsk Philharmonic orchestra was founded in 1956. Its founder, Arnold Kats had been the head of the collective for more than half a century. Under the leadership of maestro Kats the orchestra lived through a great career, and according to the feedback of the national and foreign musicians, managed to take the leading place in the hierarchy of the Russian symphony orchestras.

There is no sense to enumerate the prestigious venues and a great number of festivals in which the orchestra has been performing and participating for 60 years. The same can be said about the repertoire, covering an endless field of the symphony music – from Bach scores to the modern compositions of the XXI century.

Jennifer Pike, violin

Renowned for her unique artistry and compelling insight into music from the Baroque to the present day, Jennifer Pike has established herself as one of today’s most exciting instrumentalists.

Jennifer Pike first gained international recognition in 2002, when aged 12, she became the youngest-ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the youngest major prizewinner in the Menuhin International Violin Competition. Aged 15 she made acclaimed debuts at the BBC Proms and Wigmore Hall, and her many subsequent Proms appearances include being a ‘featured artist’ in 2009. She was invited to become a BBC New Generation Artist (2008-10), won the inaugural International London Music Masters Award and became the only classical artist ever to win the South Bank Show/Times Breakthrough Award.

Pavel Kolesnikov, piano

“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, October 2018.

Pavel Kolesnikov became Prize Laureate of the Honens International Piano Competition in 2012, and recital and festival appearances resulting from the Honens Prize include Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Berlin’s Konzerthaus, the Louvre (Paris), Vancouver Recital Society, La Jolla Music Society, Spoleto Festival USA, Canada’s Ottawa ChamberFest and Banff Summer Festival.
