Introducing the performers…
Peter Limonov studied at Moscow’s Central Music School under the guidance of Siavush Gadjiev, Valery Piasetsky and Andrei Pisarev. After winning First Prize at the Nikolai Rubinstein International Piano Competition (Paris, 1998), Peter started giving concerts throughout Europe and Russia supported by the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation. He went on to study with Hamish Milne and Alexander Satz at the Royal Academy of Music on a full scholarship and, later, at the Royal College of Music with Dimitry Alexeev, completing his Masters in 2012. During his studies Peter also took part in masterclasses given by Alfred Brendel, Stephen Hough, Vitaly Margulis and Stephen Kovacevich.
Peter’s notable appearances as a soloist and chamber musician include Wigmore Hall, La Roque d’Antheron festival (broadcast by radio France Musique), iTunes Festival 2014, Cadogan Hall, Purcell Room, St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, a recital in The Duke’s Hall in the presence of HRH Prince Charles, CD recordings for Onyx (with Leonard Elschenbroich) and Decca (with Nicola Benedetti); TV appearances for BBC Proms Extra, Newsnight, BBC Breakfast and broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and “Culture” TV channel (Russia). In November 2013 Peter made his conducting début at Cadogan Hall with London International Chamber Orchestra, directing works by Glazunov and Rachmaninov. His repertoire ranges from Orlando Gibbons to Arvo Pärt.
“…Peter Limonov, avec un détachement apparent, a joué les morceaux les plus ardus avec une aisance incroyable, une simplicité et une sincérité parfaite.”
La Nouvelle République
“Artistic, mature and utterly compelling playing…”
