Hear rare performance of Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto
Russia's Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra will launch the 2016/17 Birmingham classical orchestral concerts season with a rare performance of Tchaikovsky's Second Piano Concerto on October 14, 2016.

This special performance will see one of the finest young pianists of the Russian school, Pavel Kolesnikov, make his Birmingham debut. Pavel will join the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra for renditions of iconic works by Tchaikovsky at Symphony Hall.

Offering romantic pianism on the grandest of scales, Pavel and the orchestra will be under the baton of conductor Denis Lotoev, performing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No 2 and Symphony No 5.

Pavel Kolesnikov is rapidly building an international reputation as one of the most talented younger pianists. In 2012 he won Canada's Honens International Piano Competition, the world's biggest piano prize and his debut in London brought immediate acclaim.

A Russian composer of the late-Romantic period, Tchaikovsky's works are amongst the most popular music in the classical repertoire.

Richard Hawley, Head of Artistic Programming at Birmingham Town Hall/ Symphony Hall, says: "The Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra is the only orchestra in the world to bear the composer's name and their performances are renowned for their authentic interpretation of his most acclaimed works. This will be Pavel Kolesnikov's Birmingham debut and it promises to be an extraordinary evening of sublime music making under the baton of Denis Lotoev.

''At THSH, we pride ourselves on making classical music more accessible to a broader more diverse audience, whilst maintaining Birmingham's position as a world leading destination for some of the world's most sought after performers and top orchestras. We look forward to welcoming audiences both old and new to this very special concert."
