The young Siberian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, celebrated for his unique programming and singular sensitivity at the keyboard, is already known to Leeds audiences for a recent concerto appearance with The Hallé. He now returns for one of his rightly-praised solo programmes, this time exploring the mysterious colours of “music of the night” in the hands of the great composer-poets of the piano.

Whether it is the bell-like tones asking the deep questions about existence in Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata, the eerie loneliness of Bartók’s Out of Doors or the excitement of nighttime with Debussy’s unforgettable evocation of fireworks, this promises to be a thought-provoking recital with some serious keyboard virtuosity of the highest order. To conclude the recital, the final movement of Beethoven’s twenty-first sonata evokes dawn and the coming of a new day.
