Hear Kolesnikov in Action This Saturday
This coming Saturday, multi prize winning and amazingly talented Pavel Kolsnikov is in concert in Wendover. If you are anywhere between London and Oxford this weekend then put this concert high up on your to-do list and get yourself some tickets. The event is due to take place in St Mary’s Church at 7:30pm and boasts an exciting programme. The music to be played includes works by Lachenmann, Debussy, Chopin, Couperin, and Schumann. If you would like to find out more about the upcoming concert and ticket information, the Wendover Music website has more information.
Debussy has written countless well known works, many of which are for the piano. His most well-known is perhaps the Clair De Lune, which Kolesnikov will not be playing this coming Saturday. Clair De Lune has previously been listed as a grade seven piece for piano exams, and is a piece of music that many young pianists aspire to play. The flowing melodies and illusion of swelling water throughout the music captivate many musicians and make this piece of music immensely popular.
Kolesniko Interprets Debussy
While Kolesnikov may not be playing the Clair De Lune, he is playing other pieces by Debussy which invoke the same feelings and emotions – The Snow Is Dancing from ‘Children’s Corner’ is definitely one to listen out for. Kolesnikov’s take and interpretation on the composer is not to be missed!
If you would like to have a go at some Debussy but feel it may be a little tricky for you – don’t worry! The many features of a digital piano can help you learn even the trickiest of pieces. The inbuilt metronome on models such as the Chase CDP-345 and the Kawai KDP-90 will help you combat the very trickiest of rhythms. The record function on the Chase P-50 electronic piano will help you to listen to your playing and identify mistakes. These are features and functions that cannot be found on an acoustic piano, but are helpful when learning even the trickiest pieces of music!
