Pavel Kolesnikov at Wigmore Hall

Acclaimed pianist Pavel Kolesnikov plays keyboard music from three centuries, including music for children by Debussy and Helmut Lachenmann, and Robert Schumann's Fantasy in C.

Acclaimed Russian-born pianist Pavel Kolesnikov marks the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy with a highly original and personal programme, interspersing Debussy's 'Children's Corner' with complimentary works by Liszt, Bach, Chopin and contemporary composer Helmut Lachenmann. Pavel Kolesnikov ends by pairing Louis Couperin's Tombeau de Mr Blancrocher with one of Schumannn's most original and personal works - his Fantasie in C Major - full of autobiographical allusions to his beloved wife-to-be, Clara Wieck.

Recorded last week at Wigmore Hall and presented by Sarah Walker.
