Petr Limonov is a Russian-British pianist with a glowing list of achievements to his name - BBC ‘Newcomer of the Year’, winner of the Nikolai Rubinstein Piano Competition, performances at Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Southbank Centre and a solo recital at the Dukes Hall for His Majesty King Charles III. A frequent performer on the European scene, Petr is also a prolific recording artist, and has released discs on labels including Decca, Onyx Classics and Chandos. His musical partners have included Alfred Brendel, Jennifer Pike and Nicola Benedetti. Petr recently conducted a flashmob orchestra including Jennifer Pike and Gabriel Prokofiev in Trafalgar Square, in protest against the Russian invasion in Ukraine.
Petr’s programme in Parbold spans the centuries, starting with the timeless Pavan, written by Orlando Gibbons nearly 400 years ago. Mozart’s entrancing Rondo in A minor and the lyrical Sonata No.4 of Schubert complete the first half of distinctive works for solo piano. In the second half Petr performs Liszt’s atmospheric Nuages Gris, before treating the audience to Chopin’s Romantic masterpiece - his entire cycle of 24 Preludes.
“Petr Limonov is one of the finest pianists and musicians I have had the honour of playing with and hearing. His profound sensitivity is extremely rare, his musical intelligence is of the highest degree and his pianistic power is formidable. Petr is one of the most enlightened musical souls I have come across.” - Nicola Benedetti
